Rockfax Description
I, 100m, 1 hour. Second only to the route above for ease of climbing and access, this fun, short climb gives some easy scrambling in a beautiful spot. It is tucked out of the way from anything else and yet is only a few 100m from one of the busiest glaciers in the Alps. Walk on snow just to the right of the ridge, under a distinctive small tooth, before joining the crest where the snow steepens. Follow the rocky ridge easily enough to the final snow slopes which can feel exposed in icy conditions. These lead to the summit, via another short section of easy rock just before the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The route starts at the northern end of the col with La Vierge, which forms a continuous rocky ridge with Petit Flambeau, and is c.500m to the summit of PF, not 100m as per Rockfax. It is all on rock (in 2022) except for the snow ridge in the middle, which currently has c10-15m of ice in its narrowest part

βeta: The route we did (starting at the saddle to la Vierge was 520m as the crow flys and had 290m of height gain, so not sure about where the 100m in the route description comes from).
