Jenny finishing up 'Les larmes du Chaos' in the Vallon du Diable. The other side of the valley is south facing and the ice there looked about as solid as your average meringue.

Summit of the Emeraude gully. From the top of the gully, still a long way from the true summit of Ailefroide, two rappels take you to the Ailefroide glacier and a short climb up shit rock to the Glacier Noir pass. Then 400m down a 50° slope that make you wish you had your skis with you.

Middle of the Emeraude gully with most of the Glacier noir visible and the prominent Barre des Ecrins smack in the middle, partly sheltered by Peak Coolidge. The Pelvoux starts on the far right.
