The route is in the vicinity of the Les Bans hut. Having crossed the Ravin Coste-Counier, the route takes an obvious wide chimney/gulley for a number of pitches scrambling/diff/type with a lot of loose rock before arriving at a small brèche. From there the route follows the ridge up left, NW, over a series of towers, the first at 2829 metres, linked by rappels, to the main summit at 3025. The rock is sound and well bolted over the more delicate sections. Having climbed it in 2003 the memory is a bit hazy but I am certain it is in John Brailsford's guide to Les Ecrins, it was he who recommended the route to us. Would appreciate if you could confirm I've got the right name.
