Rockfax Description
II, 120m, 1 hour. From the Col du Tour, follow the ridge easily over some fun, blocky scrambling to the summit. There is the odd 'move' but generally the terrain is very straightforward and ideal for practising moving together and general alpine efficiency.
Descent - Descend the Normal Route to reach the Glacier du Tour. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A mixed route to the summit along the ridge from the Col du Tour. Follow first snow, then rock, then mixed climbing. A steep snow pitch on the left side of the arete (North Face) through a notch leads to easier ground and the summit.

Took a diversion onto a powdery north face, to get out of the wind and into the sun.

The snow slope consisted of Scottish slush on ice sheet; interesting
