3730m. See descriptions 145 in Constant or 23a in Alpine Club. A couple of variants which include the south couloir from above the Ecrins hut. Often combined with a traverse of the Roche Emile Pic to the Col Emile Pic.

South Couloir combined with Traverse to col Emile Pic descent. VERY sketchy abseil. Ends in a bergschrund. Recommend at least a 60m rope for the descent (or a 30m ab possibility) Recommend descending first ab then traversing left to the bolt on the right wall and using that to protect the crossing of the bergschrund. Spectacular route!

Snow colouir was great fun. Add Pic Neige Cordier on the end as well.

Couloir was steep, two members of party found ridge too exposed/difficult with spikes on. Consequently came down couloir rather than traversing over ridge, quicker but tricky - made it down!

Via the south couloir from the hut. Combined with traverse to Pic de Neige Cordier
