Climbs at this crag
Train from Chamonix to Montenvers then fixed ladders down rock faces to the glacier, head off SE up the glacier aiming for the far (right bank). In good visibility you can see the ice cliffs. You are unlikely to be alone as it is a popular spot for guides to take novice ice climbers.
