Rockfax Description
I, 150m, 2 hours. The route can be started from anywhere around the bottom of the ridge. It is possible to avoid the difficulties at the start by staying right of the rock and following the snow slope. It is also possible to escape the route just about anywhere along its length by joining the snow slope and climbing this instead but the aim of this description is to maximise climbing/scrambling and minimise walking.
Approach - From the Col des Grands Montets (the top of the Grands Montets cable car) descend onto the Glacier des Rognons (the bergschrund you need to cross is often thinnest on the far right when looking down) and walk down alongside the route itself for 10 minutes to reach the start.
1) Climb a series of slabby corners just to the right of the toe of the buttress and emerge onto the ridge crest after 40m at a notch.
2) Scramble up for 15m just to the left of the ridge crest before following a ledge system out onto the south face.
3) Follow the south face for 30m, passing plenty of good spikes and flakes, which provide good protection. A good landmark to keep an eye out for is a huge, detached flake/block, which is half way along this traverse. Climb a right-sloping ramp back towards the ridge crest and step down at the top of it onto a flat ledge below a curving rock with a wide crack on its left.
3a) It is also possible to continue traversing across the south face and climb a small but steep corner which leads directly to the ridge crest).
4) Climb the wide crack via a couple of thuggish moves to regain the crest.
5) Follow the ridge crest, or just right of it, to a 15m high vertical wall with twin cracks.
6) 4c. Climb the twin cracks to a small ledge.
7) Traverse right across ledges to rejoin the ridge crest. Follow this in a fantastic position over the final hump on the ridge. After this there is a handrail and a path (in place from winter when the ski patrol use the ridge to access certain parts of the mountain) leading to the viewing platform at the lift station. Finishing the route will almost certainly involve having your

OG ?Aug, 2018 AltLd First non-guided Alpine route and a superb one at that. Classic alpine ridge. Glacier fairly dry so easy to see/dodge crevasses, bergschrund so dry you could walk across in on grass/soil, rock nice and dry. The first few sections off the glacier seemed trickier (looser and more exposed at least) than the supposed crux, which we barely noticed. Rockfax also doesn’t mention the metal cable on the rightward ramp (maybe we were on the wrong ramp but everything seemed to match the description).

TomH92 16 Aug, 2017 AltLd Enjoyable alpine climb, with few other people on it. We misjudged where the twin cracks were and ended up sending two narrower cracks 20m short (and round the corner) from where the crux lies. In total it took us about 2.5 hours to climb, which is an hour longer than the Rockfax guide thinks it should take, however with the quality of the climbing and the great views I would have no hesitations in doing it again.

JennyBroomby 26 Jul, 2017 - Fab short walk in. First section of the ridge was a little difficult being the first on with the rest of our gang after fresh snow fall. Made route finding a little difficult and crampons were needed where they may not have been ordinarily. Once up on the crest of the ridge, a large number of groups (3-5 to a rope) came up the snow slope and on the ridge in front of us so progress ground to something of a total standstill! We eventually decided to skirt round and bash through the snow on the final section due to the queue of approx 30(!) ahead of us. Shame we couldn't finish along the final section, but nonetheless a great day out. Am sure would have been considerably easier if dry.
