Description

Mon P'tit Piton is a fun route on nice rock for 4 pitches of fairly consistent difficulty.

First pitch climbs for over 30m up a slab through grassy holes on nice big jugs to a comfy ledge.

The second pitch traverses up to the left for a couple of meters then into a shallow dihedral ending at a small ledge belay.  25m.

Third 20m pitch ascends through slabby holes with protection a ways off the belay.  Finish up a gravely grassy slope to a large ledge.

The last 20m pitch has a fun traverse to the right across a big hole to a steep slab pillar finish.

The route climbs well and quickly on fun features.Big, chunky belay anchors with chain.Great views!

Descent

Route can be rappelled with two 60m cords from P4 to P2 to the ground.  Don’t try this with a single 60m rope.

There’s also a walk off up then right which winds down to the base of the crag.  Easy.

Location

Trail from the parking lot bangs right into the base of the route.

Located to the right of Mouton Noir.  One of the furthest right (east) routes on the buttress of la Cochette.  

"P'tit Piton" is painted red at the foot of the track (the “P” are engraved in the rock).

Protection

Fixed pro with some spacing between bolts but never too alarming. Supplemental pro options for small rack.
