Description Suggest change

A wonderful line following various corner and crack systems. Entertaining from bottom to top, and very homogeneous in difficulty. This route, still quite new, is destined to become a classic.

Pitches go at 5c+, 6a, 6a+, 6b+, 6b, 5c+, 5c+, 6a, 6a+, 6b+. We found the final pitch to be the most demanding: after a gorgeous layback crack, the pitch traverses several meters to the right, underneath a bulge, where a very solid portion of counterpressure (arms pulling an undercling, feet pushing against the vertical slab underneath) is required.

Location Suggest change

From the base of the abseilpiste, ascend the gully a short distance, following red markings. Scramble across to the other side of the gully, still following the markings, to a fixed rope which leads to the start of the route (name is painted at the base).

See area description for getting in to the gorge and back to the starting point afterwards.

Protection Suggest change

Fully bolted from start to finish.

2x50m ropes.
