Route: Mapped signposted paintmarked route to summit.
Difficulties: a few steep passages with minor scrambling
Trig point: 15cm block with IGN inscribed on side and X on top face.
Notes: Scenic ascent, fine narrow crest, great views. Crested tits heard on lower slopes; Alpine Choughs perched skirmishing near summit (I had forgotten food so they were out of luck, as was I). Cross dated 1983. Table d’Orientation (1984) is fairly limited, misses some prominent peak, and apparently has errors, e.g. Aiguille Verte in the wrong place (i.e. left of Pointe Percee). A few walking parties met.
