Rockfax Description
II, 100m, 1 hour. The less climbed of the two summits, the north summit is marginally higher and can be combined with the south summit to give a longer outing. Climb the couloir between the north and south summits which has snow in early- to mid-season and rock - loose in places - from mid-summer onwards. This leads to a vague ledge system which goes diagonally rightwards to the summit via some exposed but easy scrambling. © Rockfax

EGriffin 30 Jun Lead O/S Bivvied above Albert Premiere for 3am start. Summited Auguille du Tour North at 6:30am via North Summit Normal Route, moving together. Attempted to descent via Traverse of a Main Ridge, but then decided to descent via same route to the top of “death gully” (lots of loose rock). Then took the south half of the Traverse to the South Summit, we then descended via the East Face. The North Summit had no one on it, however the South Summit had a gazzilion people on it. Back to top of lift at 11:15.

Claire Noble 8 Jun, 2016 - First alpine route without a guide. Bit of a slog up through the Glacier du Tour from Albert 1er (which we had to walk up to the day before due to lifts not being open). Route itself was short and very straightforwards, we placed runners due to a member of the group being uncomfortable with the exposure. It was probably unnecessary, and meant the route took a bit longer, but overall was still good fun!
