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

Description 

Just a way to connect a multi-pitch route from the bottom to the top of the Dent d'Argentine cliff.

A way to connect to this route from below would be to climb the route "Trail Slab Face Left" of sector Melchsee.

If not already at the standing dead tree, walk right roughly horizontally parallel to top edge of Melchsee cliff to reach it. From the tree, walk horizontal right until reach the right end of the top of the Melchsee cliff. Step onto rock face (across the top of the a right-facing chimney/corner. Traverse under a bolt, and soon reach the vertical bolt line for the route "Right Anchor Up" join that (5.6) up to to two-bolt anchor - (or could turn upward sooner and join the route "Right Low Chimney".

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 

The standing dead tree near the right side of the wide ledge at the top of the Melchsee sector.

Protection 

One bolt for the final section traversing across rock face over top of Right Low Chimney.

Could be Top-Roped from the two-bolt anchor near the right end of the Mid-Level Ledge - (but not clear what purpose this would serve).
