Description

A fun moderate multi pitch route which climbs quickly and has great views.

The first pitch climbs up a flat, well featured limestone face with great incut edges. Finishes up a steep bit to a shared belay with Voie Chegevaroux. A couple of options to start with the left side being a bit harder.

Second pitch climbs past a shared bolt then breaks to the right through some loose rock (take care!) up to the ledge below the prominent chimney.

Ascend the chimney (slick, polished limestone) or climb out to the right on a harder variation (5.10a-ish?) which ascends the steep wall to a chained belay/rappel anchor.

Fourth pitch climbs up nicely featured face drifting a touch to the right to meet up with the variation.

Up steep, exposed face climbing on somewhat slick features. Belay at the shallow ledge. The "Eperon" routes converge here as well.

Finish up by climbing a short flake feature then trending up and back left, or, further left and up the short bit to the top. Yay!

Location

Located in the notch formed by the detached spike of rock at the base of the buttress.

Located to the right of Voie Chegeveroux (and shares the first belay anchor with that route).

Route name purportedly at the base but could be quite faded.

Walk down after ascending a few feet above the top of the route and then to the west. Trail goes back to the base of the route.

Protection

Bolted route with some chained rappel anchors.

If a belay is missed (!), a set of small cams in the .5, .75 and 1 Camalot size might prove useful.
