First day up the Aiguille du Midi for the season

With no fresh snow falling in the last week and high temperatures we decided it would be a good idea to head up the Midi to find out where all the holes are this season.

It is key to get ready fast at the top so you don’t get caught behind large groups on L’arete

The long traverse home gives you time to take in the amazing views and prepare yourself for the 350 stairs that you have to climb before getting to the lift.
