The Fine Granite Crux Wall Of Arete Laurence, Cosmiques Hut, Chamonix

This impressive but very short wall is generally climbed in descent on the traverse leading from the Mt Blanc side of the ridge in to the Cosmiques Hut. The traverse can be protected from above and with gear in the cracks en route. Snowy conditions on the Triangle du Tacul in the background.
