Two good repeats in the Mt Blanc Range

Great stuff here!  The new ice season has definitely started!

Both these routes were freed as hard mixed lines.

Jeff Mercier and Korra Pesce on a exceptional mixed line originally done in two days, August 1967 by Jacques Léon Dard Reppelin. It was repeated again in two days in July 1972,  by Jean-Michel Cambon and Jean-Marc Boivin.      And again in two days by Jean-Claude Droyer in the winter of '72 solo.

(my French translation my be faulty on the details above, my apologies if so)

And one of the few *complete* ascents of  Beyond Good and Evil by Matt Helliker and Andy Perkins.  This one a 20 year old test piece put up  by Andy Parkin and Mark Twight in 1992.
