Nice short climb from the refuge. A funny rockpart just below the summit. The summit is now without snow/ice.
On the glacier there is a steep part and some crevasses.
Nice views on the other Dauphiné summits.
Route Climber : normal route up, straight to La Bérarde coming down Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2007
Leaving from refuge A. Planchard at around 6.00 am, we reached the summit at approx. 9 a.m. Apart from rather strong winds the wheather was great (sunny, blue sky)
From the summit we did not return to A. Planchard but went via two cols (col de neige + can't remember the name) back down to La Bérarde.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
