This is almost always used in descent effecting a classic traverse of the mountain. The Mont Mallet Glacier is rather crevassed and sports a huge rimaye that must generally be crossed by abseil.

In descent after bailing off the ridge when there were too many people ahead of us to fit in the hut. A beautiful but long walk back down the glaciers to the train to Cham. Crossing the Massif on foot was pretty cool though.
