Actually, we did the "voie des lézards, a route a bit left of the Rateau, that summits on the Pointe Thoreau. Great climb, 11 pitches, with 2-3 five sup pitches. Great views of the valley.
Nice route in good weather.
Bit of everything. Fun climbing. First time on a glacier.
only 3 of all climbers of the day have reached the true summit : Sabrina, Alain and me.
Many people do not go further than the first presummit even if it is an easy traverse max II to the small pyramide which is the highest point at 3809 m (east summit)...
great route with fantastic views from the summit
Very rewarding and varied climb
My first alpine ascent. The west ridge/south face route from the Girose Glacier. Mixed and rock climbing.
