Super Misere, Alpe d'Huez

Back to Alpe d'Huez  for our last climb of the trip to climb Super Misere which looked like a Scottish icy gully on Ben Nevis!
The first pitch had some steep icy bulges and the ice was rock solid as it wasn't in the sun. The second pitch looked less steep but with some thin ice in places, a couple of the ice screws actually bottomed out on the rock. It was steeper than it looked and even where it looked like the angle eased, it was still steep! Finally into the sun at the top of the second pitch with the ice becoming a bit more amenable.
