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.

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.
