Beautiful and very enjoyable ridge traverse, quite aerial in sevral sections. The route follows the ridge that climbs de Aiguille du Peigne, sorting through four different towers on either side. Easiest descent is through the Papillons Coloir, completely dry in the summer, with a couple of rappels.

As per comments 5.8 A0 (Aiding off 2 pins) is the most common rating, going without is 5.10-.


The start of the route is about 45min from the Plan de l'Aiguille mid-station of the cableway to the Aiguille du Midi. As you exit the station, is right in front of you.


Standard trad climbing rack for a ridge: set of cams, nuts and a some slings.
