After 4 days in bed with the flu, it was great to shake of the cob webs with a run I have been wanting to do for awhile; The east face of Aiguille Mesure.  The line looks very obvious from the other side of the valley while skiing The Posettes and you would expect a line that is this obvious to  be skied all the time, but strangely enough I know very few people that have skied it, and of the few people I know that have tried, not many made it all the way to the summit. Deep sugar seems to be the story I get why people turn around before the true summit. With the amazing conditions we have had in Chamonix this year Asmus Norreslet, Thor Husted and myself agreed that yesterday would be a great day to give it a try.
