From Marcel Col, the route is straightforward on moderate snow slopes, although hard ice can form easily here, especially in winter. You’ll also find good evidence of climate change here: a large gap is starting to form about halfway up the ridge and soon we may see exposed rock, which will make this route more difficult. A sad sign of the times.
