DescriptionThe best 'easy' route in the area, and a great if not a tad long warm-up. Be sure to have a 70m rope for this one.
A strenuous start leads to a long, varied, enjoyable climb through pockets, thin edges, overhangs, and even some crack climbing up to the anchors. No distinct crux, but several spots that will make you pause and think -- and the length could test your endurance.
This is the better of the two 5's (French) in the area, though the other is easier at 5.9 (All the King's Horses).
