In mid-November I visited Chamonix with Tina and Caroline, where we focused on Aiguilles des Pelerins.

an IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from
|Tina di Batista, a verified IFMGA/UIAGM|
mountain guide as well as a mother.
We hiked up from Chamonix on Friday afternoon to the winter hut, which was completely full. We realized that the route would be crowded, so we decided to leave our packs, descend down and return the following day with sleeping bags if the hut be crowded again. The following afternoon we were back.
We had lucky, the weather was perfect and the hut was almost empty:)
Caroline enjoying the crux pitch, a steep left facing corner with a delicate climbing.
We climbed Beyond on Sunday, 18th of November. We took advantage of great conditions this fall and climbed the route smoothly within nine hours. We met up with the nearby Rebuffat - Terray to finish this route, as the last two pitches of Beyond were not in condition.
All I can say is, that we really enjoyed the climb.
