Description [Suggest Change]

Up the slab at the nose of Les Fesses. Pass to the left of the bloc to the flat section above. Traverse the flat section containing one piton. Up a diagonal right crack to the top. Route is convoluted and ambiance is airy in the second half.

I used double ropes.

Parts of this route that cannot be seen from the start take longer to dry after rain than most other routes. Also the start and several sections are a little dirty.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Good, has one piton in crack above start and one piton in middle flat section.

Did not use anything above 2 inches. Bring long slings. Rope drag may be an issue.

The last gully has a lot of loose rocks!
you can traverse right and down (belayed is best)to a glue-in anchor to rappel back down, the rap webbing on the tree above the gully is toast... Jun 30, 2016
