Thousands of cubic meters of ice threaten to collapse: the north face of the Aiguille du Midi is not recommended for mountaineers.
After a fall of seracs, 15,000 to 20,000 m³ of ice is now unstable and threatens to collapse in the Mallory Corridor. A newsletter of La Chamoniarde strongly advises against frequenting the foot of the north face of the Aiguille du Midi.
On Monday 14 June at around 3 p.m. there was a fall of seracs that gave the alert. From the Plan de l'Aiguille refuge, one of the keepers Eddy Veillet has observed a large avalanche over a part of the glacier overlooking the Mallory corridor. In this season, this sector is a very classic slope and frequented by mountaineers.
