Good summit for fast ascent, but we recommend to spend one night in the refuge to avoid mountain sickness. We left Cosmiques refuge earlier than normal (around 4:30am) to avoid crowds. Excellent snow, excellent weather, very easy climb, refuge to summit in 2h30m and only two people at the top. Last 30 meters with ice and rock, better avoid with beginners. On the way back, hundreds of people. The only difficulties can be crevasses at the end of the summer and some avalanche danger after windy days.
