Access Advice

The Trident du Tacul suffered a massive rockfall in September 2018, taking out the lower parts of routes such as Lépiney and Les Intouchables.

Sorry, There are no Route Cards associated with this hill
Not sure why English grades when it's a glacier access and quite a serious place if weather changes on you. And routes on The Brevent are given Alpine Grades!?

Ben, why is Contamine given a British grade? we're not in Britain! (It's wrong anyway, it's E2 5c)

Strange to give most of the routes their alpine grades but O Sole Mio a French grade? Could always put the French grade in the description. No big deal, just for consistency and ego stroking purposes :P
