Climbs at this crag
Access from the Torino hut/Hellbroner lift. Alternatively walk from the Midi station and bivy comfortably at the Col du Geant.
The couloir leading up to the Salle a Manger becomes very dangerous in the afternoon due to the combination of the a.noon sun and the scores of people descending it. Try to avoid it between 10am and 7pm.
