4 out of 5 stars Cosmiques ridge/winter conditions

More than three feet of fresh snow, crampons on for the whole ridge, high winds, a sprained ankle on a fucked abseil and a lot of fun overall.

4 out of 5 stars Led

An enjoyable ascent. The gulleys were bare of snow so there was some loose rock and rubble to cross. The 'hard' move was no more than 5.6 and the final chimney was about 5.3 ish. (my partner tried to use the in situ sling on the hard move and said it made it harder.) Total time from col to cable car 2.5 hours.
