A classic Alpine arete route in the Ecrins. HS/VS crux, and 5 abs for descent(topo in hut).

On the approach, from the awkward slabby bit (first time you use your hands) an hour from the hut stay on the left to hit a good path and avoid grim scree. The topo for the new abseil descent is in the hut and is very good -lengths and instructions accurate and clear. I used approach shoes for the climb, putting crampons on for the glacier; this was fine late season. The crevasses were not too bad.

Fantastic climbing on good quality granite. Watch out for the waterfall on the descent!

Did in big boots, should have worn rock shoes like everyone else as slabs made much harder
