Aiguille du Plan, Face Nord
07 / 04 / 2011 - FRANCE, Mt Blanc, TD+, 50░/55░, 1000 m

Wednesday evening Julien Herry : "Roch tomorow we are going to the North Face of the Aiguille du Plan with Lionel Hachemi". Because Julien had a good point of view from his home and had been looking all winter this face, I finaly join them.

From the Aiguille du Midi we traverse to the Aiguille du Plan. The snow during the traverse is not so good. I hope it will be better in the run. Surprise ! 5 to 20 cm of fresh snow in this face. The way to go down is not easy. We have to ride between hugh seracs and make 2 absail. Then some good patch of snow brings us to the final stage, 3 absail to reach the bottom glacier.

This run has everything that makes a reel steep run in the Mt Blanc range : route, engagement, absail, environment, steep and joy !
