First rope lengths from Port are rather unpleasant. Once on the ridge very nice climbing on sound rock. Higher up some harder moves turning some gendarmes on the left side. Maybe we should have stayed on the ridge. Satisfying climb.
You have to be very fast and simul climb quite a lot to gain 4hrs given by the topo.
Very nice alpine route - we saw less pitons than were described in the Sac fuhrer but maybe we just didn't look hard enough. A set of friends and slings allows for good protection on this route.
