Grande Casse (3855 m), north face - Grands Couloirs traverse

That day we aimed the Couloir des Italiens, but the north face was too icy. So we climbed the "medium north face" to reach the summit of the Grande Casse and then skied down the Grand Couloirs. A nice trip with Stéphane ! I went back to the Italian couloirs some years after (May 2009), and found it in great conditions for skiing.
