Great classic. Amazing climbing with austere ambiance.

Approach

From Fontaine Froide go up towards the wall. The route starts some 30m to the right of the couloir line (under a big black stain on the wall).

Quite some bolts and pitons. Basically all the harder moves are protected, but the quality of certain bolts is questionable.
