Description

An Envers classic.

Location

Take the ladders to exit from the hut terrace. Climb up and right through a notch, then descend to the Trélaporte glacier. Traverse the glacier, avoiding longitudinal crevasses by staying high or low depending on the season and time of year.

Start at the lowest part of the face and hope that there's no 'schrund.  Fixed sections of rope are typically used to reach the start of the climb in late summer.
Start the route between two big corners (to the right) and a series of small roofs (to the left).

Protection

Double set of cams, lots of quick draws, and glacier gear. All anchors are bolted.
