Pitch 1: climb up the right side of the pillar, gaining the slab and following fixed protection up, aiming for a crack system just right of the middle of the pillar.
Pitch 2: up off the belay, steep, trending slightly to the left following weaknesses and sometimes cryptic, but solid, holds. Belay beneath the overhang on the middle of the sloping ledge.
Pitch 3: traverse left until it seems reasonable to climb up the steep, short overhanging rock. Step back slightly right, then up to the top.
Enjoy the great views of Furon, Lans-en-Vercors, and the sublime surrounding environs.
Nice flat staging area.
Descent by either a 45m rappel into the gully, or, walk off the top and back around to the base of the climb. Anchor on route might support a rappel back to the base but didn't seem rigged for rappelling specifically.
Fixed belay anchors at the end of every pitch.
Hardware has recently been replaced on this route and is bomber. Several old fixed pins left for historical reference?
