Le Lutin des Neiges - Papillons

 Le Lutin des Neiges - A great little route up to the crêt of Arete du Papillons, on aiguille du Peigne
Easily accessed from l´Plan du Aiguille, a 40min walk and Voilá!
The start is located below a few bolts, Petzl hangers, to the left of a (normally) snow field

Anna Backlund on the top pitch of "le Lutin des Neiges"

First pitch takes a series of short boulder problems, all good protected both bolts. Just take care of a bit wired traverse right some 20m up. Most natural feels to go straight up/left over some slabs...
Second pitch is a short 20m slab climb and then up an other 20m to a single bolt anchor.
Cross the gully up leftwards and then finish the route with 4 great pitches of steep climbing!
Rappel the same route or continue "arete du Papillion"

7 pitches / 6b

2x50m rope
Small set of wires (3-4mid size nuts)
Green-Red Aliens, X-tra of yellow and Red
