Viso, East ridge

The region of Mt Blanc is covered with black clouds, it’s really the Mordor here, it’s just if you do not cross Orcs … though. It’s over for the week, heading south, the Viso and its beautiful East ridge. This route is definitely worth the detour. Without ever being difficult (if you are a player, a rope of 20m is enough), the climbing is pleasant and the view is incredible. On the other hand, mountaineer, do not believe you arrived once the summit reached. As for crossing the Pelvoux, this is only the beginning. For some, a second night at the refuge will be necessary. With Cécile, we left the Sella refuge to reach the foot of the ridge at dawn to see the yellow points not so easy to find. Then it’s pretty obvious. Note the ice in the couloir towards Saint-Robert. The descent of the normal route is not to be neglected. Then it is the descent of the cables under Pas de la Sagnettes, long … long but beautiful.
