Description

A 200 ft freestanding spire with two pitch routes that span from 5.2 to 5.10a. Most of the routes can be trad climbed, because the highly featured slabby limestone has a lot of flakes, cracks and threads. The bolting is very runout anyway. It is also a good place to practice simul climbing and other alpine tricks because of the straightforward routes and the slabby nature. The summit fits 2 people comfortably and 6 people uncomfortably. There are belays 6 ft under the top so you can wait if the rap station that is the summit is crowded. To descend you thread the ropes trough a quicklink at the climbers right on the summit. The first part is freehanging and after a while it goes into a gully. A single 60m rope is enough, but is important to choose the south gully (climbers right). After this you follow the trail downwards

Getting There

The base of The Aiguille is the first thing you encounter on the approach.
