Grand Capucin - voie suisse

It is still possible to cross bergschrund on the far left (skiers right), with some scrambling to get to the snow couloir. There is still a good cover of snow in the couloir to directly approach the swiss ledge. Only 1 pitch (5c) to access the belay for the route start. Look for the double bolt and ring rappel anchors to allow rappels all the way down to the glacier.
