A mountain with a great variety of interesting routes including three ridges and a fine face climb (when in condition). Since it's slightly below 4,000m. it receives relatively little attention and it's common to climb it mid-season and have the peak to oneself. Most routes give interesting glacier approaches and finish with rock ridges in a very fine location, giving views of the North side of the Dent Blanche. Highly recommended.
