300m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
II, 250m. The first ascent of this was only in 2011 but the excellent climbing and easy access have already made it popular.
1) Climb the short snow slope and 15m of mixed ground to reach another snow slope and a belay. Follow the snow slope and 25m of 75 degree mixed terrain to the foot of a deep, left-leaning chimney.
2) The chimney is a nice ice climb when fat but something of a thrutch when thin. Either way it is well protected and enjoyable.
3) 100m of 50 degree snow leads to a final open corner just below the ridge crest.
4) Climb the corner (4a) which is easier than it looks and exit onto the Petite Aiguille Verte's Northeast Ridge (p.114). © Rockfax
