I didn't find much info there about the northern side sadly. So yeh I'm pretty much sticking now to the plan B that I go and do just a short trip to climb one weekend and burning (just hoping it's possible in my new company) my holidays later on. Or well I'm now also trying to figure out if there is something fun in Chamonix during first half of May.

I'm reading one book at the moment and a mountain called Blanche de Perroc was mentioned in it but there is like no information about it on the internet it seems. According to the text I pictured the climb pretty fun steep icy route.

Edit. Also browsing some options in Ecrins now. For example Roche de la Muzelle coulouir seems fun.

Blanche de Perroc is a subsidiary summit of Dent de Perroc. I happened to be in the area less than a month ago, otherwise I wouldn't have heard of it. Here is a photo of the upper part of Dent de Perroc that I took from Arolla:

I think that the main summit is in the center, Pointe Genevois is on the far right and Blanche de Perroc is the point on the left where the ridge gets steeper.

Marvelous, thank you. I think it will be this or Roche de la Muzelle coulouir where I'm heading in 1 month. There is this 1 trip report from Dent de Perroc where a couple of skiers climbed to certain altitude and then went down. Date is early april.

I have till very little knowledge about Blanche de Perroc but I guess I can just need to find the correct face and then go try it myself and see how it is. If I decide to go there.
