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 by staying. There are crevasses, so watch out.

Start at the lowest part of the face and hope that there's no 'schrund.
Star 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.
