Dent de Rosses, Moiry

~ Sunday 1st September 2013

With a mixed forecast for the  start of the week we went up to the Moiry hut hoping to find good climbing on the lower peaks. The Moiry glacier is still one of the best places around for a crampon technique session, and there's some excellent rock climbing on the crags behind the hut. 

Monday dawned clear - better than forecast - with a dusting of fresh snow providing some slippery climbing on the Pointes de Mourti-Dent de Rosses traverse.

Long rope on wet glaciers!
