A famous climb in the French Alps, done this last August by Caroline George. Like many of us, she had trouble finding a partner with the time and the experience:
“But since he couldn’t find anyone, I motivated to go with him and started to look forward to a bivouac on the face. Yet at the last minute, he found a partner. The next day, I woke up to intense FOMO desperately longing to do something big too…
The crux indeed proved to be the lack of partners: people were either down south rock climbing, or working, or on expeditions and no one was really motivated to hike up there when you can access it more easily on skis in the winter.”
Of course,. unlike most of us, she ended up climbing it with the world famous climber Ueli Steck.
