Thanks to Guido Freddi for adding this peak.
It is possible to reach the Aiguille the Rochefort by the wanderful Crete de Richefort (West ridge, AD+/D, III, 600m from the Dent du Geant, 7hrs rt from Rifugio Torino, 4001m). The ridge (snow) is very sharp and spectacular. The rock is easy. We climbed with crampons because ice covered some rocks in the shadow. It is one of the most beautiful routes of the massif of those not requiring to sleep in a hut.
Thanks to Guido Freddi for this description.
