The Ultra classic "Le Gringalet" known for "The Hand" on the 3rd pitch which is formed by updrafts coming up the right wall. In many seasons you can climb behind this formation to clear the final pitch.P1: Climb the short pitch to the ledge on the right ~30m and belay on a tree that is slung for rappel. (In early season you may be climbing more rock than Ice).(alternate: a ledge 50 feet up has 2 Glue-ins located about 25' to the left on the ledge - may be useful if the route is crowded)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
