Located directly above the Argentière Hut, the granite offers spectacular climbing with easy access and fantastic views.

South facing, it is usually one of the first faces to be free of snow and available for rock climbing in the spring. It's quite possible to be climbing here in short-sleeves while skiers tour the glacier below.

Getting There 

From the hut, go up the slope for ~15 minutes to the base of the cliff.
