Hiked up from the Hellebroner station and started from the col. Very exposed, but never too technical. There is an aid piece in place at the most difficult section. Amazing views in all directions as noted below. My favorite was the entire Peutery ridge there over my left shoulder - when I was willing to look away from the climbing!
Normal Route SW - NE Ridge Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2003
Easy approach, then the work begins! Quite exposed in some areas and just when you think you have reached the summit, you discover this ridge has two of them! An absolutely great climb, with breathtaking views (if you dare to take your eyes off your feet!)
Route Climbed: Normal SW-NE Ridge/Arete d'Entrèves Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2006
Beautiful ridge with exposed parts and excellent views (Mont Blanc -Italian Side-, Mer de Glace, Gran Capucin, Tour Ronde etc.) Roland and I started from SW point at 10h00am, traversed the South and North Summits and arrived at NE point at 12h00. Another excellent alpine experience; "walk in the knife" !!
