An easy snow climb.
The path is sometimes overhung by seracs, then do not take too much time while exposed.

From the refuge des Ecrins it takes 4 hours to reach the summit, and then 4/5 hours to go down to the Pré de Mme Carle.


From the refuge des Ecrins, walk down to the Glacier Blanc, in direction of the Dome de neige des Ecrins.
When you are at the bottom of the mount, start on the right then go left to avoid seracs. Finally retake right, walk along the Barre des Ecrins up to the summit.
See picture for more explicit directions !
