I had the pleasure of staying with a friend who had been a guide on the Matterhorn; he imparted many pearls of wisdom as well as an enormous amount of route finding beta. 4 hours to the summit is a great time standard and is a reasonable goal provided you can move through the slower teams as quickly/early as possible; do not take a break until the Solvay Hut (this is the first place to stop and drink) and do not tarry anywhere along the ascent. Additionally the route is so long that conventional belayed climbing is simply too slow. Teams should consider short-roping and moving together. Additionally descend by down climbing and reserve rappelling only for the two Mosely slabs above and below the Solvay Hut.

Ascending the Hourglass in late October; fixed ropes were buried, but I managed to uncover most of them just in case.... Probably better to climb this particular route when there is adequate snow to reduce the rockfall hazard. We had the mountain to ourselves.  Descending towards the top of the Hourglass.  Summit!  This pic is taken on the Tour Ronde; ascending to gain the SE Ridge Route- which is seen looming in the background.  This pic shows the beginning of the rock section on the Dent d'Geant; another great Chamonix classic. The Aiguille d'Midi is in the background and the Valle Blanche stretches out between; a great skiing venue.
