From Kevin McLane's 'Alpine Select':

This is the ever-popular normal route to the summit, directly up from the Joffre-Matier col. The difficulties are mainly on the 45 degree snow apron below the rock, many different lines can be taken 1-1.5 h from upper Matier glacier. Descend via the route.


Axe, crampons, pickets/screws depending on conditions.
