The base of the South-East face is obviously in front of you when you look at the Chandelle from the Combe Maudite.
The route starts slightly on the right part of the base of the aiguille

Route Description

The route is almost in the middle of the South-East face.
After 5 pitches, the route crosses the face on the left (2 pitches) to reach an overhanging and difficult diedra (7 ab French scale). It is preferable to stop the cross after one pitch and climb a thin crack (6b, end of Tabou route, magnificent climb).

Essential Gear

Bring friends ans nuts. Belays are not always prefect
