Diablotin and Macho attempts

Posted: March 31, 2010 in extreme, Ski, tour

On our first attempt on the Diablotin the cables of the midi lift got twisted and we did not get up untill about 10.30am. We climbed the Breche du Carabinier quickly and set off up the couloir in great snow conditions. We would have made it easily to the top but the weather came in and we turned round about half way. frustrating as we would have skied the whole thing if the lift had run ok.

On our second attempt we were planning on the Macho with a small weather window in the morning so we stayed up the Midi the night before. There had been a lot of snow and climbing the Breche du Carabinier was very difficult and took a long time. Once again the weather was not on our side and we had to turn around.
