DescriptionThe North Ridge starts at the obvious col between the Aiguille and the Torment-Forbidden ridge. 2-3 pitches of almost-level ridge climbing can be pitched out, simul-climbed, or short-roped (3rd class). A single 4th class pitch, 50-60', is the route's crux. A shorter 4th class ridge pitch gains the summit.
Descent is by down climbing to the top of the steep pitch, where rappel slings wait in a great position. Then retrace your steps across the level ridge to the col.
