Description

A peak offering a variety of snow/ice routes of varying difficulty, from French grades PD+ to D. The normal route is a varied and beautiful climb up the Geay glacier with the slope never exceeding 40 degrees. 1400m from the Mont Pourri hut to the summit (2 other huts are also used for other routes). Rock climbing is available on a secondary face, with 10 or so routes of 8 to 14 pitches, many bolted.

Thanks to Peter Holden for this description.
