BETA PHOTO: sector 6 Lachenal - area Rush C. Left Diagonals


Interesting fun moves the whole way. If only this were longer.

Diagonal up right on multiple parallel edges to reach base of left-slanting 2-ft-deep right-facing corner. Up the corner to the top (one move a bit reachy).

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


20 ft right from big broken right-facing corner gully (which is the right ene of sector 5 Rebuffat).

No fixed hardware for top anchor or for leading as of 2016.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown.

Top-Roping: Difficult scrambling (low class 5) up R-facing broken gully to left of route to reach diagonal left-to-right ramp above top of route. Build natural (rock thread or horn) or Trad-gear anchor, likely need long slings or short static line.
