A rapid visit to the Dent de Crolles. You can still ski from the car park at 1220 but there is a new barrier (closed) at this point so we'll have to see when the road to the col is cleared this year. Last year they let the snow melt naturally. I was a bit doubtful. The avalanche bulletin warned the snow would not transform all day due to poor weather moving in from the south but by 12am the sun had begun to shine weakly. Left the car at 2pm, spring snow on the road and SW face. Summit at 3.25pm. Climbed the Pas using crampons (as usual).
