BETA PHOTO: A)."Auguille du Gieant".1600'5.5R B).and...


The formation when viewed from the south is similar to a Franch alp of the same name.It has only one technical pitch of 5.5R ,pitch one.The rest of this long route is 4th class with perhaps one 5.0 pitch near the summit ( a single bolt will be found for a short rap).A good easy fun climb/scramble with the reward of a great summit and views. Starts up a broken groove just right of the dark rock wave...see topo photo.Desent.One can avoid descending (rapping) the 5.5 first pitch by scrambling down south of the dark rock wave.


The route is located on the first large easy angled formation about 1/4 mile left of the entrance of Little Spotted Wolf Canyon. Park at the first pull off about 2.1 miles from the I.70 gate.From here one has a clear view of the formation.About a 15min walk.
