I climb this route 2 times, first time guided and next time I did it solo.
Everyone attempting this route must be patient, there is a lot of people climbing everyday.
Great route, but it was super crowded. We had to wait quite a few times.
..cold and lots of snow..wonderful!
Great first Alpine lead, really enjoyed it. Was back last summer and did it for my last climb of the trip, with a dodgy knee had me a bit nervous on the crux (its always so bloody crowded!) but still loved it!
Quite an amount of snow in the route. At the crux only one in situ friend.
Climbed it twice, once on July 14th 2013 and once on Jun 22nd 2013. The first time we went for enjoyment and didn't make terribly good time. The second time, my friend and I went for speed and we managed it in 2.5 hrs (having to wait a bit for parties on the last two pitches). Great climb! Excellent views!
Climbed the route With Paul. Plenty of snow on it.
My introduction to alpine mixed climbing, with Mike Chen and lead by a Chamonix high mountain guide. Fun route with lots of exciting exposure, though somewhat uncomfortable to climb 5th class rock with crampons.
Really enjoyable climbing! A little foggy.
Nice route, way easier than I thought.
Alpine 'plaisir' climbing with a very low commitment factor. Still, a pleasent climb with great views and some fine climbing passages. Fast Food Alpinism at it's best!
3rd time and counting....still as enjoyable as the first time though
One of the most beautiful route you can dream of.
After two attempts, caused by nasty weather on the first day, we finally managed to climbed up the rigde.
Climbed with Igi and Pawel.

Climbed in perfect conditions and greatly enjoyed it. Didn't need to use crampons except for the approach.
Amazing views and perfect weather
Climbed from the Midi tram via the Col du Midi. Great refresher climb before climbing Mont Blanc from the valley days later via the Domes du Miage & Bionnassay traverse.
Great climb with James and Edward - we enjoyed every bit of it
Relaxed climb! Great conditions! Nice activity for a sunny afternoon.
The whole climb was a lot of fun. First to finish the route on the day and the crowd on the platform all wanted to have their picture taken with us.
