3 pitches. From the Durier Hut follow the south ridge, snow then mixed, to the summit. This contains a rock step with a few short pitches. From the summit follow the exposed snow arete to the Col de Bionnassay, and back up to the Piton Des Italiens, and so to the Dôme du Goûter. Descend to Goûter refuge or ascend Mont Blanc.

walts4 ??, 2013 Solo Set off from the car to the Durier, then onwards to Bionassay, completed the traverse but turned around at the Vallot due to high wind. Had to walk all the way back down to the car as the train was closed! Long day...
