Approached on skis to avoid the summer scree slope but this might have been more hassle than benefit! Enough loose and fractured rock to slow down the first half of the route. The final scramble good fun. Rapped into the couloir and down half of it, downclimbed on snow in rockboots to the skis- again unpleasant- ski out was fun though!

Truely awfull approach/descent up the scree slope of death, top of the aiguille was rather exciting

Steve led first pitch. Alternated thereafter, and moved together after the last of the 4+ pitches. Rouges almost clear of snow at this point, and the scree slope up and down was a genuinely grueling experience.

Many pitches to the top and as usual the descent was not as simple as it sounded!
