High On The Ascent Of Pollux SW Ridge (PD+)

This enjoyable and fairly short climb involves some mixed / rocky scrambling ground, this steeper section of fixed ropes and an enjoyable snow crest to finish.

Pollux Summit - Fresh Snow Conditions

And magnificent views East to the giants of the Monte Rosa Massif & Liskamm. Strahlhorn far left also.
