Partner: Andi Fichtner 
Conditions: Great! A lot of ice in the route, most belays in the ice
Routes: Ginat (ED-)
  • This was one of the nicest north faces I have seen and now finally climbed.
  • The route is rather easy to find, always stay in/near the corner.
  • The bergschrund can be crossed left or right without bigger difficulties
  • We started at the hut at 2:30 and were at the top at 15:30
  • Abseiling the south couloir from the breche is obvious, there are many rappel stations 
  • The descent to the Couvercle hut can be a bit tricky finding through the crevasses
