Rockfax Description
II. Although the Northwest Ridge is straightforward and (rightly) the most popular route on the peak, it is possible to reach the summit without even using your hands by walking to the large col between the Tête Blanche and the Petite Fourche and onto the top from here. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Snow slopes to the SE of the summit, avoiding the bergschrund and the spur from the Col du Tour that forms the NW Ridge route. Worthwhile as a short diversion if descending from the Petite Fourche

βeta: The Col du Tour has been equipped with fixed rope and bolts by guardian of the Cab Trient - but still rather loose underfoot in ascent!!
