Starting from the ledge easily accessed from the "Cheminée" route, go staight up to a large horizontal crack, move left the the arete, then back up to the summit.

Careful, beginning of the climb is on a slab where the only protection easily installed will be a "00 Mastercam". It's a bit far to reach even for someone tall and the previous pro will be far from you. From the horizontal crack, protection is correct and easy, but bring long slings to reduce the drag from zigzagging to left and back to the summit.


Start by climbing up the obvious "Cheminée" route left of Fatman's Misery. The route starts from the ledge, where 2 bolted anchors are located.


On the top are bolted anchors and chain allowing to rap down on either side of the "Aiguille" or to set up top ropes.
