From Argentiere hut up Amethystes Glacier and then turn left up a snow slope to the arete - follow this with long sections of II/III rock, including a tight post box, 15 metre abseil off the Fleche Rousse (avoidable as don't need to go to Fleche Rousse), from there to the summit and down one of the glaciers as per one of the Normal Routes.

Patience paid off as we waited for good weather so the snow was in perfect condition for the approach and the descent down the Mileu Glacier. Fun scrambling on the ridge with one or two quite dangerous sections of weetabix! A fantastic day but a shame to miss the last telefrique by 10 mins! Took an extra hour to walk down to Argentiere

Snow was in appalling condition, took us ages due to wading in knee deep snow with a hard crust. Great ridge and fun rock climbing though!

Out of conidition despite reports to the contrary. Snow gave way underfoot on several occassions. Serious falls narrowly avoided. Choppered. Nothing hurt except pride. Dissapointing and embarrassing way to end first trip to the alps.
