From the hut follow the Glacier Blanc up the North flank by the path of least resistance avoiding crevasses and seracs, aiming for the upper glacier plateau and the Breche Lory on the right. This point separates the Barre on the left from the Dome de Neige des Ecrins on the right. At the breche/col the ridge proper is accessed by walking around the left side of the rock step and climbing an easy chimney around 30 feet in height. At the top of the chimney go left up the crest of the ridge to the summit or follow it just below on the left side (North) on snow and easy rocks.
