Aig. du Midì – Ronde to West Couloir 23.04.2012

Although i told myself i wouldn’t have gone anymore into the west couloir if not from the really top (from the north face) because of the to high risks due to the exposed traverse to go in and the massive serac above your head, i couldn’t resist the tentation of those great conditions nevertheless.
Ross and Dave never have been there before so it was for me a pleasure to go back there and open it for the third winter.
The traverse was pretty skatchy and overloaded of snow…one of those moments when you try to move and breathe really lightly.
It took us one hour to climb the 40 m to the col in chest deep snow and thanks to Ross for the patience in cleaning and breaking the top mushroom that was overlooking us.
The ride has been just epic !!!

Dropping the icy step at the bottom…better to don’t look up!
