Description [Suggest Change]

The Cornlier Ridge follows the obvious dihedral on the west face of the Cornlier Buttress. The route is fairly sustained but only requires a single bolt protected move of 5.10 on pitch three.

Begin the route by scrambling up ledges below the obvious right facing dihedral.

Pitch One: Climb up through a steep right facing corner with fun climbing until the angle backs off. Continue up the corner system until a small ledge with a two bolt anchor is encountered on the right (100').
Pitch Two: Continue up the corner passing small roofs until it becomes possible to step left to a bolted belay on arete (115').
Pitch Three: Climb past large roof system on left and continue up until a traverse back right into the main corner becomes possible. Near the top of the corner a roof is encountered, pass this by traversing right past a bolt (crux) and continuing to a bolted anchor in a notch on the ridge 100').

Descend the route. A single 70 meter rope works perfect. Or continue up the ridge for many more pitches. This recommended option increases the difficulty and certainly increases the adventure.
