Description

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.

Look for the most obvious dihedral on the west face.
