Great place, with bucketloads of atmosphere and routes facing south and north.

In good nick now, and the walk in is well tracked and snow reasonably consolidated. (Although some Les 2 Alpes lifts are on standby due to wind...)

ice-fall.com now includes conditions for Diable and Veneon too.

In reply to troglodyte:
Beware windslab on the supposed 'safer' lower slopes. The 16th Feb saw dangerous wind slab on both sides! One punter was lucky to escape with a 300ft ride, partial burial and luckily no injuries approaching the 'Larmes de Chaos' area. I would have thought a mountain guide in his article may have mentionned these dangers rather than an 'all fun in the sun' type original article.
