    Solo ascent from Le Tour on "autobahn" (aka normal route). Very pleasant top part: scramble on granite boulders. Good views into Mont Blanc and Aiguille Verte ranges.

    A final short scramble in a mostly enclosed gully brought me out onto the boulder covered summit. The rocks were icy and a cold wind blew but it was a good spot. To the North the ground fell away...

    A solo climb . A long glacier treck over Col Superior de Tour, followed by a steep descent to the Trient Plateau. A steady pull up to the base of the South Peak and a nice scramble to the tiny...

    Aim to summit early if you want to get the peak to yourself. Sunrise was truly magnificent when I was there. We found a scramble up that involved a couple of good moves but is basically straight...

  • Log #15841 - by Chris Carter on July 15, 2002
    A very easy peak to reach and because it is, make sure to start the walk/climb up there nice and early before it becomes too busy.A very rewarding first alpine peak though.

    Two nice pinnacles, both 3540 m high. The northern one is more difficult to climb. From 3170 m high located Cabane du Trient the peak can reached in less than 3 hours.

    Summitted in a total white-out with a scouse policeman. nightmare!!!
  • Log #15844 - by Peter Baines on Aug 30, 2001
    Would be ideal for a first climb in the alps. I ascended the Table du Rock Couloir which presented no difficulties. Went from top of couloir along ridge to the summit.
  • Log #15845 - by Ivar Noordenbos on Aug 11, 2001
    Easy mountain with great view on the summit. We did it from the Cabane d'Orny.

    Very nice, but be careful when too many people intend to climb it
  • Log #15847 - by Sjoerd van Mil on Nov 07, 2000
    Climbed the Tabelrock couloir and to the top when there was a lot of snow. It gives the route an extra kick.
