MB de Tacul - the NE face
Two lesser know lines between the mighty Gervasutti couloir (not visible, on the right) and the Supercouloir to the left:

A: Gervasutti Pillar (Fornelli/Mauro, 1951, 800m, TD+, 6a or 5+ and A1)
B: Boccalatte Pillar (Boccalatte / Pietrasanta, 1936, 850m, TD, 5+. First route of the wall)
C: Pilier de la Quille (Mollaret, Seigneur, 1965, 800m, ED-, 6b or 5+ and A2)
D: Supercouloir (Boivin, Gabarrou, 1975, 800m, IV 5 M6)
E: Tree Points Pillar (Mellano/Perego and Cavalleri/Tron, 1958, 500m, TD, 5 and A1)
F: Mt. Blanc de Tacul, 4248m

1: Couloir Macho (Macho, 1973, 800m, TD+, 70°, IV 4)
2: Couloir Barton - Shaw (Barton/Shaw, 1973, ED, 80° IV 5). This is the line of Andy Parkin's solo - it's probable the FA kept more to the right the upper part.
