III, 1350m, 1 day. From the Refuge d'Argentière, descend back onto the glacier and walk down the right bank until below and right of the Glacier du Chardonnet.

2) Follow the glacier to reach a 100m long couloir coming down from the northwest ridge.
3) Climb this (low-angled mixed ground) to reach the ridge.
4) Follow the ridge easily on snow and over the odd short rock step to reach the summit. © Rockfax
