Ascent Trip Report

Met with Per and Kris in Chamonix and got in Per's car to Switzerland and the Lac d'Émosson. Parked, passed the dam and started to climb up the ridge. Roped up in two groups - Caj & Kris, Eva & Per. Traversed the ridge and passed the Grand Perron summit on the way. Rappelled to the valley and hiked back to the car.

A great climb and traverse with great company.
