Ascent Trip Report

We decided to hike this mountain even if we started late at noon and if we were not geared up with crampons and piolet. As per a trip report I read the day before, There was still lots of snow in the col. It was a fact. After 1h30 of ascent, we made it through the snow patch in the col. It was slippery, so we decided to made it by an other way. So we began to ascent via the right corridor with was class 3+ scrambling. A few hundreds meters later, we took a break and we heard loose rocks coming down our way. We ran under a larger rock, they passed a few meters from us. Then, we decided to go back due to the high risk of death using this path. We stopped at 2791m elevation.
