The Start Of The Famous Narrow Snow Ridge Of The Rochefort Arete

Narrow and exposed but in good conditions a real mountaineering treat. However it should be noted that this route is by no means just snow ridges and has several mixed and potentially icy passages as well as some quite steep rock on the summit bastion. This section now has several bolted anchor stations. As does the top of the steep icy slope in the central section.
