BETA PHOTO: Miroir sector 8 Y. Right Connect from Melchsee Z...

Description 

Fun climbing though short.

Mainly a connection to make a multi-pitch route from left bottom of Melchsee sector to left top of the Dent d'Argentine.

Up on rock to small ledge, next step left about six feet to crack, finish up that to reach Mid-Level Edge.

Variation 1: Above the small ledge, instead take the face right of the crack (5.3).

Variation 2: When reach the small small ledge, instead walk Left (slightly) down and around corner to find chimney. Finish up route "Far Left Low Chimney" to left end of Mid-Level Ledge.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

Almost to the left end of lower part of Miroir face, left of mossy shallow wide gully.

Protection 

4 bolts to two-bolt top anchor.
. . (bolts and hangers are 304 Stainless, installed 2017).

Protection for Trad leading is unknown, and likely inadequate.

Top-Roping: For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Miroir sector.

Could use the anchor at the left end of cliff top as a top-anchor for TR, and have belayer on Mid-Level Ledge.
