Long but easy approach by the Glacier Blanc to the righthand side of the face, leads through the Seracs and crevasses first left, and ultimately right onto the shoulder of the Ecrins and its Satillite.

The route this year is ??PD. Much longer than normal due to serac fall and crevasses the route starts at the r moves along over the serac band to the very far left as if doing the traverse of the Barre. Initially climb the ridge (icey when we did it with a fixed rope) and skirt r below the schrund and then onto the summit.

Bivi beyond the hut. Got up before the masses from the hut and enjoyed a great sunrise and summit to ourselves. Technically easy but felt quite long with as a first alpine route of the summer with no acclimatisation.
