Made a solo ascent of this spectacular looking pinnacle via a long rambling Via Ferrata which crosses it's southern aspect before ascending steeply up the LH skyline as the peak is viewed from the valley. I will get round to writing this up as a route page some time - also the "Croix de Toulouse" - another nice Via Ferrata, ascending directly above the town of Briancon 8km or so further to the East.
Like Rampini shows in her mountain page for this peak, I encountered also an alpine goat on the summit.
