300m, 13 pitches. Traditional climb, not! bolted.
In the top part (on the W face) traverse left before going up. The 6a (french) traverse to the right on steep slab has 2 old bolts. It leads to the final diedre.

Andy Moles 3 Sep, 2017 AltLd Climbed this as far as the ledge below the upper tower, then a steep 6c+ pitch on Coup de Bambou into the top of Visite Obligatoire. Or something along those lines.

alexm198 17 Aug, 2015 AltLd O/S Fantastic route. Exposure on the traverse is immense. Led odds.

Andy Clarke 5 Jul, 2013 AltLd An impressive and adventurous route. Took a fall on lead on the crux slab pitch high up, so aided. Even allowing for the fact that you're knackered after 12 pitches, 6a mon cul! Lots of snow on the descent and we only just made dinner back at the hut. Rarely has macaroni and meatballs tasted so good. Another memorable day on this magnificent mountain.

Andrew Sloan 16 Sep, 2012 AltLd O/S Led even piches. Tremendous route. Traversed too far on west face on pitch 12 and so got behind a french party which held us up. Crux pitch was pitch 13. Both Martin and I thought the 6a traverse was technical F6c albeit with bomber adjacent pegs.Took 10 hours after waiting behind french team.

Martin Haworth 16 Sep, 2012 AltLd O/S Superb trad route, 15 pitches. Pitch 13 has a very hard traverse, English 5c, and pitch 14 will test you if you are tired.

Andy S ?Aug, 2003 Lead O/S Sorry for the crap entry - I'm not even sure it's 100% accurate. I didn't keep a good record of the climb and this is my best guess as to which climb it was. The grade is an estimate. It's mostly trad with the odd bolt or piton at the belays.
