Rockfax Description
II, 100m, 1 hour. Less climbed than the other ridges around here, this is a good way of getting on top of the Tête Blanche if starting from the Cabane du Trient. Climb the glacier to the left of the north face and then cut onto the ridge when level with a prominent rock buttress. Climb easily through this and then continue up some enjoyable blocky scrambling to the summit.
Descent - Descend the Normal Route to reach the Glacier du Tour. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The left (north) arete/ridge of the north face, approached from the col to the left. mixed snow and rock.

Luke Jones 3 Aug, 2016 - Too loose and with difficult route finding due to lack of snow and ice. Descended with difficulty well before the summit and found a route around to join the normal route.

adam001 25 Jul, 2016 Lead Led group moving together. Some difficult route finding due to a very large amount of loose rock, clearly the route has changed, very much crest is best. Few nice bits of climbing and a short but very nice knife edged snow arete mid way.
