DescriptionBeautiful 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-.
