The Aiguille Qui-Remue North Face is a sought after descent that is less often in condition than some of the other north facing lines nearby.
From the top of the Grand Montets cable car, ski down the very start of the Point du Vue piste before quickly ducking the rope and heading skier's right and down the Glacier du Rognons.
Take care to watch out for some large crevasses on the upper section.
Keep to skier's right of the Rognon itself (a large rock island).
This soon brings you down onto the Glacier d'Argentière.
Skin up the glacier to the bottom of the Qui-Remue North Face.
The first half is the steepest section (50 degrees) and finding a way past the ice bulge may be delicate.
The upper slopes are less steep (around 45 degrees).
It is possible to top out the face via three different exits.
The far looker's left side is the least steep and most often in condition.
Ski back down the same way and out onto the Glacier d'Argentière.
