Description 

Climbers (lookers) right most peak of the Aiguilles. Easiest access as it is almost directly above the Plan station. Can be shady for most of the day due to its northern aspect.



FA in 1906 by G. Liegard, R. O'Gorman, J. Couttetand, and J. Ravanel.


Getting There 

Gettign to the base of the Arete des Papillons is 20-30 minutes if you take the tram. Approaching other routes will be longer as you have to go up and around that ridge on either side.
