Le Pylone

Ron and I went to try out our new ice axes on Le Pylone and for me, to try climbing steep ice without leashes. The ice was hard and fragile in places and the axes took a bit of getting used to but with nobody above us, we could enjoy the climbing.

Le Pylone is probably the most popular route and one of the most accessible. Last Sunday we counted at least nineteen climbers at or on the route so a place best avoided at weekends.
