Aiguille du Midi North Face, Chamonix
The last hard mixed pitch on the Eugster, but there is still a long way to go to the station!
We abandoned all hope of catching the last Telecabine down here....we were going to miss it by miles! A night in the Midi station toilets coming up, well worth it though!
