Easy summit Southeast from Grand Combin, in the long row on the Swiss-Italian border. From Rifugio Crete-Seche you follow a route until an easy snow/ice field on the South-slope. All other routes are much more difficult, steep North-wall. You can start in Switzerland (Val de Bagnes) as well. After passing Fenetre de Durand you pick up the South-route. One of the easiest of this height in the Alps.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
