PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 488 logbooks, and on 30 wishlists.

Also did 3 pitches up the loose stuff to get to the boulder. Nice easy route in a great position along the ridge. The rock gets better the higher you climb(mainly 30-40m pitches), very little in the form of bolts/pitons though so a set of nuts and 3 cams are needed to build your belays.

Did some sort of dodgy variation to start and then a few more to avoid the crowds, which didn't really help as you all meet at the top anyway.

Nice jolly, more like a multi pitch Severe rather than an alpine route as the grade would suggest. Awesome positions!

Enjoyable route, got the first lift up and climbed it before the crowds arrived, abbed down to the decent gully in one with an 80 meter rope skipping the intermediate abbing anchor. Then found a concealed abbing anchor to take us down the worst of the gully. Interesting encounter with a ibex on the third pitch made for a memorable day.

Perroux Route - takes in two pitches on the lower buttress. Started at base of the buttress. Alt lead 2 pitches to the grassy terrace then moved together from there. Abseil JUST possible using one 60m rope doubled, but you do need to land in exactly the right place!

chrissloan84 - Aug/11 with paul

The abseil can be done in two directions: right-hand onto the breche is the one described in the guidebook. The left-hand one, which most people seem to take nowadays, needs a longer rope (50m double ropes are fine), so with our single 70m rope we had to do some low-grade downclimbing. When we were down also a couple of guys tried to abseil to the right of the right-hand abseil, into the couloir. This is more than 50m and got them almost stuck, but finally they managed some abseiling of pegs + some free solo downclimbing into the couloir.

Duck took first pitch so I could recover after sprinting up to start with all the gear. Got to the scramble bits after second pitch and got stuck behind a group who managed to abseil off into the wrong side of the gulley. Missed the teleferique back down waiting for them to abseil. Long walk down and ended up in the golf course.

1st pitch really polished however an amazing route! had a bit of an epic, as we got caught during a thunderstorm on the summit then abseiled down to a ledge, waited the storm to pass then after abseiling down into the descent gulley filled with neve without crampons or axe fell 20m to the bottom which the rocks at the bottom provided a soft landing! and tore my ligaments in my leg! good lessons learnt for the future.

One polished/exposed move, but otherwise easy and fun. Got ambushed by stormy weather and torrential rain at the top, making the descent abseil quite interesting. Down-climbing a hard snow couloir to get off was the scariest bit... we managed to miss the path, having seen footprints in the snow!

Reversed route to descend. Really peeved off an ageing Frenchman who didn't like someone down climbing his route! Oh the inconvenience.

Spent almost as long waiting to abseil as we had taken climbing it. The guy in front had a new 90-metre abseil rope which was in knots...
