A long alpine north face though never that steep, the crux being the state of the seracs which can turn an ascent into a very seroius proposition.

Finished by Contamine-Lachenal direct finish, steep (C 75-80 degree),, but avoids doing a long exposed traverse right under the upper serac barrier. Perilous crossing of the top of the face where it had been exposed to the sun.
