Jottnar

First ascent: Mark Thomas, Dave Almond 16/03/2013
By: Planetmountain
Area: Western Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Mont Blanc, Country: France

Jottnar is a tricky, not obvious line. A blank canvas of corners and grooves leading back up towards the top of the Cosmiques Arete": four pitches with difficulties up to Scottish grade VIII,8. The 60m fourth pitch leads right onto the Cosmiques Arete and was described by Thomas as "mind blowing". Jottnar finishes directly on the viewing platform at the Aiguille Du Midi station.

GETTING THERE

From Chamonix take the Aiguille Du Midi cable car.

ACCESS

Abseil down the Goulotte de la Passerelle.
