A normal ski day in Chamonix
Probably the biggest classic down the Aiguille du Midi
It’s the first time I skied it and yes it’s a good one. Not too steep, in fairly good conditions and in front of (most) people.
Glacier Rond: AD, 4.2, E3 – 45° / 250m – 40° / 500m (exit couloir)
The following photos are mainly from today, showing the upper face in similar conditions like I found them last Tuesday when I skied it. Upper section was sluffed off and rather firm and grippy but with powder stashed at the sides. The exit couloir that day had already seen 5 people and maybe the same count the day before. It was still deep and skied really well.
And this is how skiing in the exit couloir (can) look like:
