Fine route with no people even though Glière was very crowded. The route is bolted well but the bolts can be far apart on the easier parts. Only a few bolts and pegs on te ridge - bring some gear for this.
There is a bloted anchor on the summit from which you can reach the ridge with a 25 metre (or so) abseil as described in the guide book. We chose a wrong situated 15-20 metre from the summit in the direction of Chamonix. This is the first abseil anchor on a different route. It is possible to reach the ridge with a full 60 metre diagonal abseil though.
