From Geurt van Rennes:

Nice mountain. A needle pointing up from the range. Very nice climbing in good quality rock when coming from the Cab. de la Tza. If you come from the Cab. de Bertol you have to cross a glacier. Watch out for crevasses.

    Nice climb. Good rock, lovely day, horrible glaciers. Jim's 2nd ascent (see Linda Alderson, '87). Jim wimped out on leading any of it.

    Superb rock peak. Very pleasant and easy climbing. Very solid and great rock! I think it's about grade 3+ (French cotation). The view from the summit is really splendid: Matterhorn, Dent Blanche,...
