Aiguille Noire de Peuterey (South Ridge) 1200m, TD.
Write up coming soon... here are some pictures for now!
Cooking up at the amazing Noire (Borelli) Hut
The skyline ridge starting from Point Gambi (big spire on left) to the summit.
2/3rds up the ridge... first time the camera came out.
Making myself comfy on the 1 man bivvy ledge. Byron left me after an hour or so of crouching. Stayed clipped on all night.
Brewing up at 3600m
Arriving at the Bivvy just as the sun went down
The last abseil before the summit......
...before the ropes got stuck, so had to prussik back up the full 50m
Byron with his ladyfriend
Summit view is always amazing.
The descent is long, tedious and hard to follow. Worth getting some good beta on about the descent. We wasted quite a lot of time route-finding on the East ridge.
More write up and beta soon.
