Mont Saxonnex

Well known for its dry tooling routes, the Mont Saxonnex spot is also very interesting for pure ice climbing. 

The easiest one is very logic and pleasant. Pitch 1 : nice diedral with thin ice, 5, pithc 2 : steep wall covered by thin ice, 5+, pitch 3 : classic column, 5.

Then, there are some much harder ones, depending on the amount of ice available. That day we climbed a very thin column followed by a steep wall (35m, 6), and an amazing overhanging section of 20m, also followed by a vertical wall (35m, 6+).
