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.

βeta: the approach to the Durer hut (from the domes du miages) needs only a single 10m absail, not a 30m or two 15m as the guidebooks say. you can leave your 60m ropes at home and take a nice lightweight 30m!
