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.

Short roped the entire wall. Finished with the traverse of the Meije.

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!

Voie Pierre Allain. Climbed as a 3. Epic descent in the fog :-(

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.
