Adventure skiing on Aiguille du Midi - Glacier Rond to West Couloir

Lift served skiing Chamonix style with Mika Joensuu and Mikko Heimonen. It's always adventurous to drop in on-sight to these big lines. You just need to be prepared for surprises... Great day out!

Dropping in to Glacier Rond


We roped up on this sketchy traverse to access the West Couloir 


Mika Joensuu  abseiling down to West Couloir


Snow turned out pretty damn firm.. 





Recent serac fall had taken all the snow from the exit so we had to do a pretty unpleasant extra rappel under the hanging serac.. 



It was Friday the 13th, but luckily not for us...
