OverviewA popular springtime ice/mixed route on the righthand side of the Pointes supérieures de Pré de Bar. Just above the bergschrund an obvious ice gully leads straight to the ridge crest. Partway up the route an obvious step of ice leads left and up to a route of similar style and character: Madness Tres Mince.
Getting ThereSki to the back left corner of the Argentiere Basin. Cross the bergschrund (probably easiest on the left side) and head towards the gully.
Route DescriptionClimb a few pitches of low-angle ice to the junction with Madness Tres Mince (to the left).
2 x 60m ropes
small rock rack including medium cams and nuts
cord for v-threads
skis will make the approach and especially the descent much faster and enjoyable
