Grandes Jorasses. The past summer witnessed a veritable epidemic of attempts to climb the north face of this mountain, at one point three different parties being on the peak at the same time. One of these attempts ended fatally when retreat was forced by a snow storm. A vivid account of this climb written by the survivor appeared in Der Bergsteiger (January, 1935).
