Description Suggest change

FA'd by Michael Ward while he was working in Montreal (he was the doctor on the first successful expedition on Everest)

Simply follow the corner up to a 2 bolt anchor 90 feet or so up.

Look for a rusty piton mid way up; planted there by Mr. Ward himself? Looks like it.

Location Suggest change

One of the first routes when coming in on the right of L'Aiguille. Look for the big left leaning crack just before a boulder you would have to squeeze through to pass by the cliff.

Protection Suggest change

A very well protected climb with the crux at the very start.
