250m, 8 pitches. Great views of the Mont Blanc Massif in a wild and remote setting.

Take the Brevent telepherique to the middle station of PlanPraz. Take the path to lac Cornu (15mins) then take the first combe on the left. Total approach 30mins. High above to the right you should see a tower which is the summit.

Last pitch is either 6a+ or 5b - I would recommend the 6a+ - great feeling of exposure.

Make sure you dont miss the last telecabin down - its a long walk !

Lead the first 5 pitches, we were climbing as a 3 and as a result were running late and would not have made the lift down. Great route with fantastic rock! Will definitely return......

Pitches 2 and 5. Fantastic, varied climbing with the crux right at the top. Climbed in approach shoes.

Bit contrived and busy. Individual pitches present good climbing. Useful for ropework skills.

I think this may have been some of the best leading - especially on the second half. I did two pitches of 5c and two of 6a ( all bolted) with a sizeable rucksack. Really pleased I had the balls to go left of the arÍte at the end for a memorable finish.

Ran out of steam 3 bolts from the end! Got to the lift with 5 mins to spare. Definitely agree about the exposure on the last pitch but 6a seemed quite low. Will be back to finish this one off.

some awesome pitches, really nice rock, good exposure - last pitch is well worth it regardless of tiredness and the missing the last telecabin does indeed mean a long walk

Great fun climb.The 6a+ finish has great exposure. Yes the walk back down is long. we jogged and walked and it took about 2 hours, the rain storm didn't help!
