Description

Such a good route. The start is easy to find: it's the low point of the enormous Pointe Adolphe Rey pinnacle. The route starts on the LEFT side of the enormous chasm that breaks the pinnacle.

P1. You can either scramble up fourth class on the first pitch or climb the splitter, right-facing hand crack dihedral (5.8). Obviously you should do the latter, unless you're trying to pass a party or otherwise be fast.

P2. 5.10 crux through the buldge.

P3. and P4. both 5.7 or 5.8 ish. Follow cracks and grooves slightly left but staying on the crest.

P5. The "Slippery Groove". It's really a chimney with parallel cracks in the back.

P6. Wide crack straight up. (5.8)

P7. Move into the V-notch on the left (5.7)

P8. Summit.

It's possible to continue one more pitch if you want to go to the second, higher summit. This requires rapping the backside of the pinnacle and therefore demands that you carry your approach gear with you.

Protection

Single set of cams up to #4. Double ropes.
