Lesueur Route on Le Dru - Free Ascent




Kim Ladiges and Tom Livingstone made an onsight and free ascent of the Leseuer Route on the north face of Le Grand Dru on the 15/16th March 2017. 

They found very dry conditions and little ice, and bivied two pitches below the Breche des Drus because of high winds on the summit. They summited the Grand Dru on the second day, before abseiling down the Dru Couloir. They free climbed the route, with crux pitches somewhere in the region of M7.
