/ 500 foot outside climbing wall!
anybody done it ?
I'm no great plastic puller but that is certainly a respectable route not just for the novelty but the situation and commitment too.
There's a dam on the right driving up the valley from Chamonix towards Martigny which had a similar line of bolts running up it, Lac d'Emosson dam, but the last I heard was that climbing it had been banned.

It could be the most boring route in the world depending on the route setting!
im not really one for plastic but looks like some awesome exposure, would be fun to do as a day trip if i ever found myself in the area.
you'd have to miss out the last bolt and take a lob from the top!
What are the grades ? I'm up for it !
165m, 5 pitches. (5b, 5c, 6a, 6a+, 6a+)
