b_fillmore 3 Jul, 2016 Lead dnf Went straight to 3200m after arriving in Ailefroide. Had to hike up as no buses running yet. Long day meant that a member of the party got sick from the altitude overnight, so the attempt the next morning was short and not successful. Rained on our bivy too, great start to the trip!

sjbrook 26 Jul, 2015 Solo O/S From the Ecrins Hut. Simple snow plod with some crevasse avoidance. Scree to the rocks at the start of the Summit ridge. The summit ridge itself is a little harder, the climbing is easy but the exposure adds to the excitement. a sling or two is useful for protection in gaining and descending from the ridge.
