Ascent Trip Report

Followed up by French family of three, nice lot who I'd chatted to in the refuge the night before. One slipped and pulled the others off. They fell 1000 ft and were killed. Called rescue team and met them. My head wasn't in the right space for soloing after that so had night in Musso Bivvy hut then went down early next morning.
