The route is on the broken face just left of the sport-route Your Mother on the upper West Face of the Bastille. Sections of this climb are dangerous either for lack of gear or for lack of good rock. I do not recommend the route.


The protection on this route is frightening. Little wonder the route is rarely done. I hve never seen another party on it in 6 years, nor have I heard of anyone doing it. Just as the moves get easier, the rock and pro go from bad to worse. You might get a tricam or some nuts lower down. The rock at and above the roof is bad, so nothing is very good. You must be solid at the grade to do this route.
