Francis Hardy 18 Jul, 2018 Lead Brilliant - nice easy climbing, well equipped on great rock and fantastic views from the summit. Climbed in two teams of two - arrived on the summit only to find that Becky had never ab'd before - not a problem though as there's plenty of space at the top of the pinnacle for impromptu lessons :)

adam001 7 Aug, 2017 - Climb itself is great, ukc says 3+ but the plenty of bolts comment refers to the 4b/4c route, which climbs well in big boots. The 3b/c route is trad gear for the most part but all anchors on either route are well placed double bolts and chains top anchor is currently 2 bolts and tat. We down climbed the last pitch then Abseiled down twice on a 50m rope which was literally just enough to reach the second ab anchor. Down climbed the rest. Approach from the bertol was up a scree slope with a good trail and a short section of chain. Descent we abseiled the col de la tsa on 2 v threads with a wide open bergshrund at the Base which we had to cross on the left hand side looking up. We used a 40 and 50 rope which left us just short and we crossed a snow bridge. 2 50s are required. Watch out when descending from the peak as the ice is steep...we took a tumble! Good route though!!!

neal 16 Jul, 2014 - from bivi in bothy on Plan de Bertol. Climb straightforward, 1x50m rope just sufficient for abseil (on stretch for 1st, bit of scrambling down on second). Very soft snow on return, but no crevasses.

AlexKervyn ?Jul, 2010 - Came from Bertol, went down via Cabane de la Tsa. Took ~6 hours longer than expected, as we lost the trail down among the rocks. Steep névés can be dangerous, ice axe arrests became necessary.
