It' s an overall good protected route in a nice alpine setting.

Getting There

Approach: Start at Les étages, a little village not far from La Bérarde. Go up the trail till you reach Le refuge du Soreiller.
From there it's only a 30-45min walk through rocks and possible snow to the base of the route.
