800m, 26 pitches. You will need a good guide book. And still it's easy to loose the way..
Approach 1 hrs. (Check the way down from the Promontoir hut to the abseilpoint the evening before!) Climbing 7 to 9 hrs.

Cool route marred slightly by the crappy rock in the lower sections. A bit loose at the top too, though great climbing in the middle redeems it somewhat. A little under 10 hours for the route, 5 hours for the (involved) descent. Big imposing face!

Climbing as a 3 took its toll on our timing and we ended up doing the final raps and the walk down to the Aigle refuge with head torches on. The general condition of the rock is great compared to most of the Ecrins. Highly recommend the route.

Climbed the classic TD (800m) in 10/12 hrs as a three on good rock,route finding a little tricky at times. Some ice on the route. Needed an axe for the traverse of Le Meige which took another 4 hrs. Long day back at the Aigle refuge for 11pm. Hardest pitches 5+. Climbed in big boots and bivvy gear etc.
