Jean-Francois Denis, Serge Roy, 02/1977
Depends on the conditions obviously, but the route's been characterized as always thin. Bring your stubbies, and a couple pieces from your rock rack!
Climb the dihedral in the obvious left facing corner on the mountain.
Possible to do in two pitches with a 70m rope. Otherwise, also possible to do with a little bit of simul-climbing for the leader to reach the anchor. If done with 60m ropes, go up a ways until a ledge is on the left. Belay. Continue onwards until a good belay station just before the "hand" (frozen hanging ice in the shape of a hand). One pin (OK) and a bolt (BOMBER). Climb ice to the top, with a 5m Scottish mixed finish after gaining the trees. Continue until the top.
IF no parties are below you, it is possible to rap the route with two 70m ropes. TWO raps gets you to the ground.
Going climbers left along the mountain's edge, you will eventually spot a rap station with a big heavy chain on a tree. With TWO 60m ropes
