Ascent Trip ReportPointe Lachenal Traversée - mixed climbing in a snow whiteout felt like being trapped inside a ping pong ball. Summited with Derek, Rini, and Patrick. There was one surreal moment where the entire landscape was white except for a row of tiny mountaineers crossing the glacier in the distance, as if they were floating in midair. One rappel. I lead the first pitch. It was snowing and cold with very little visibility; Derek was miserable (he’s also sick!)
