From the top of the L'Aiguille lift, head out under the rope and follow the small track to the opening of a large couloir going up on the left. Boot pack up here, very close to the cliff to the pass. Pay attention to the snow conditions. From the pass descend down on skiers' left for the first 100m (large cliff on the right) to the open bowl. Bear skiers left to exit the bowl and back to the view of the pistes.
