Von dem Aufstieg durchs Couloir wurde von den Berführern in Ailefroid und dem Hüttenwirt in der Refuge de Pelvoux Ende August wg. Steinschlag abgeraten, stattdessen Aufstieg über die Rochers Rouges. Laut Hüttenwirt inzwischen regelmäßig ab August. Rochers Rouges ca. 500 hm 1-er bis 3-er Gelände. Wegfindung schwierig, recht homeopatisch mit blauen Punkten und Steinmännchen markiert. Wir haben wg. drohendem Gewitter bei der Hälfte abgebrochen. Auf der Hütte gibt es Infos zum Weg durch die Rochers Rouges.
