Oiginally called the "NW Ridge" in James Garrett's "Ibex" guide but it is more precicely located on the West face.
This route was put up as a consolation prize while exploring for ice in mid winter. It was climbed "old style" in mountain boots. Some pins were used both for ascent and for descent. it follows the path of least resistence with much simul-climbing. It exits through the cleft in the far right side of the N face, the same finish as "La Fin". It is not a particularly good climb, but does offer adventure and future parties will likely find their own variations.
