As all the routes in the South Face not regulary climbed, pretty solid rock though; some pitons in place - max V
About 1h30 to walk from Soreiller Hut to start the climb, at the bottom of the Western face of Tête du Rouget.
A few pitons are on the way of this great class IV route.
Descent is made by abseiling in the West face (using the equipment in the route called "Version Originale").
climbed la petite claire pillar, very seldom climbed. Good rock, but not "cleaned" due the lack of climbers. Good training for the bigger routes. Found 1 piton in the whole route. Girod Pillar is probably more advisable.
