Crag features
underneath the Aiguille Blaitiere, this small ridge has some great crack climbing and plenty of gendarme to climb and abseil from.

Access notes
From the Plan de l'Aiguille, (mid station Aig du Midi,) follow the path which passes to the N of Lac Bleu, then contour to reach the Blaitière glacier. Continue contouring, (the glacier is covered in large boulders at this height,) heading for the high moraine to the left of the “Pilier Rouge de Blaitière”, at a point a little to the left of where it starts to steepen. Some cairns mark the way. In order to avoid crevassed zones, do not go too high or too low. Go up the moraine by veering around to the left, (cairns) to gain a large cwm which you traverse to the right to bypass the lames, (blades of rock). The start is 20m to the right of a gap, (cracks).

The route starts up the centre of the first buttress to follow the logical line of the ridge.
