Comments/notes:

With such easy access and descent (the route literally finishes at the cable car station) this route can get quite busy in high summer season. An early start from the Cosmiques refuge can work well. Otherwise, be prepared for some waiting at the bottle necks, but theres plenty of photos to take and sandwiches to be eaten.
