Cagataille (ice)

Pitch 1
As there's not enough snow for skiing Yaron and I went ice climbing in the Cirque de Cagateille. We found plenty of ice and climbed for 4 pitches. The first up an icy runnel (III), the second in a gulley ending in an ice cave (II/III) the third up a steep ice fall (IV) and the fourth was supposed to top out the ice fall through some chandeliers (IV/V?) but the ice was too fagile and time was running out so it ended up being a long traverse over some mixed ground to some trees we could abseil from.

The start of pitch 3
