DescriptionThough new, this route provides excellent and moderate climbing to reach a beautiful and sharp peak in the Aiguilles Rouges.
Pitch 1 (5.4): This short pitch can be bypassed.
Pitch 2 (5.8): A beautiful chimney leads to face moves before topping out on a grassy section where the belay is located.
Pitch 3 (5.7): More of a linking pitch, do one move of 5.7 up a vertical wall before reaching a belay at the top.
Pitch 4 (5.8): Enjoyable 5.8 climbing leads to a grassy terrace with the belay.
Pitch 5 (walking): Walk together for around 60 meters to the right side of the face at the top of the grassy terrace.
Pitch 6 (5.9): Do easy (5.7) moves before coming to a vertical wall. Pull through a small overhang (5.9) and come to a nice belay a few meters after.
Pitch 7 (5.2): Easy climbing leads to the top of the subsidiary gendarme. From the top, rappel ~20 m to the col between the gendarme and the main peak (the Clocher de Planpraz).
Pitch 8 (5.7): Climb the arete to the summit of the Clocher.
