Les Bans (3669 m)

The summit of Bans is formed by a rocky tooth emerging from the Pilatte glacier, one of the greatest in the area. The first ascent is due to Coolodge with his guide Almer, once again ! We'll first follow the Pilatte glacier up to the west pass of Bans, and then we'll climb up the rocky nord-east ridge (rock grade III maximum).
