North face view
We climbed in three, 30m pitches, with our guide hacking out miniature stances at the end of each rope length, and bolting us to the wall with ice screws, which we removed as we ascended. As the leader his maximum fall would be 60m if he fell - assuming I was able to successfully belay him. Perhaps given that I was a non-French speaking beginner, he hadn't bothered to attempt instruction. For entrusting their lives to strangers such as I these guides receive their modest daily fees. I must try to complain less about my own job...
