West Face

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
This face has surprisingly good rock, the shortcoming being that it hasn’t had enough ascents to dislodge the numerous chockstones and loose scree jammed in its rifts and cracks. The best approach is from White Col, sidling out northwards until standing beneath the chosen route. Most of the obvious lines provide plenty of 'cam breaks'. The going towards the South Ridge gets a little scrappy, but otherwise provides some good cranking. The face isn't recommended after fresh snow, as airborne avalanches wash the entire wall.
