Day 1: Nearly got to the bivouac craveri but took the wrong couloir whilst climbing past the dames anglaises in the dark and spent the night the wrong side of the pointe isolée.
Day 2: 30mins to climb up and abseil off the pointe isolée to the bivouac craveri. Risk of thunderstorm in the afternoon so spent the day relaxing in the bivouac (to avoid being on the summit of MB in a storm).
Day 3: Bivouac Craveri to the summit of MB and down to the Aiguille du Midi to miss the last lift by 20mins...

Great Route, rather long. We took three days over it, bivying on the summit of the noire, then at the canzio, reaching the midi in one push the day after! THe top of the noire and the traverse of the dames anglases include some of the loosest climbing I have ever done! This past of the route would be better earlier in the season when there should be a bit more snow to firm things up (lack of snow and water was a problem for us on the first two days). The third day up the blanche and peuterey ridge is stunning.
