A nice, clean line with interesting climbing throughout. Many teams opt to miss out the top pitch and lower the grade significantly.

This route is dedicated to Bernie Schulke, late owner of the Hotel des Voyageurs in Vallorcine who was killed in an avalanche in Italy in April 2003. Now sadly I have to add Bernie's girlfriend Daniela to that dedication, also killed in an avalanche in Italy - less than a kilometre from Bernie, in March 2010.
