Skiing

Glacier du Mort

The Glacier du Mort is a good tour over the back side of the Flegere ski area in the Aiguilles Rouge. I headed up there today with Rog and one of his workmates, Tim.

After getting the lift to the top of the Index we headed up on skins to the Cols des Aiguilles Crochues

Tim and Rog at the Col

From here we put on the skis, but it is a traverse more than a ski, to the large couloir you can see just behind me to the left, which you then have to boot pack up.

Turn right and follow the ridge

Just behind me and to the right you can see the col that we came over earlier

It was too good to stop for pics on the way down, we came down the largish glaciated gulley you can see above the hut.
