Description

A major peak in the Chamonix Aiguilles, best known for the Pillier de Cordier (Cordier Pillar) route.

Getting There

Access by hiking the south moraine of the Nantillons glacier to its end, then crossing the tongue of the glacier (rockfall danger) to the North side and hike up. Crampons and ice axe helpful in most conditions.

Quick hikers will reach the base in 2-3 hours from the Plan de l'Aiguille (mostly flat) or Montenvers train station (serious uphill).
