La Grave...part 4

La Colere du Ciel (II, 3+)...lovely steep ice for me on the first main pitch and Ron purposely chose the steepest line he could find on the top pitch! For the first four pitches up the initial bit of ice and then the snowy couloir, we moved together which saved loads of time. This was actually the only route when we met up with other climbers "en masse" and even then, it was only because a guided group followed us up.
The descent down from this route is just one abseil then an adventure through the trees to find the bottom of the gully and the rucksacks! Especially fun when there is no trail!
