Pitch 1 (5.10-): The first pitch moves from a bolt on the face at the end of the approach path. From here, the climb move up the pillar and follows the bolt line. One or two difficult moves lead to a grassy ledge at the end of which is a belay before the next vertical section.
Pitch 2 (5.8): Go up straight and then traverse right until you reach the belay ledge.
Pitch 3 (5.9): This short pitch goes up a broken but juggy crack system with somewhat loose holds.

Pitch 6 (5.9): Climb up the crack in the center of the dihedral pulling through a few difficult sections to reach the belay at the top.

From the top, you can walk to the telepherique by going left along the top of the cliff. You can take the telepherique down back to Chamonix. Alternatively you can hike to Planpraz and from there to Chamonix.
