led P2,4,7 (first half); P2 is crux but can be avoided; nice climb, ok stances but pitches short and grades jump around

nice way to start off the Ecrins break.. pitch 5 is a push for a guy my size(5b) but the first 5c up the slab was great pitch 7, foot work all the way.. nice route in awesome surroundings

Got on this by mistake after looking for Remonte Pente... but found it to be a lot of fun. I got all the good pitches again (sorry Rich). loved the last pitch!

done with the 5c variation - missing the 3a pitches. Final 5c pitch is very nice
Dawlish - AltLd O/S - 11/Aug/12 with Tony Kartawick

Some nice bits, but the direct doesn't add much in quality to the easier original R-P.

Really nice steady route, the first 5C's pitch being the the best. French climbing is the muts!!

Lovely easy route, more well bolted than other routes/crags nearby. Route took 2 hours, nice steady day to make up for week's epics

Climbed with Steve. Some really nice pitches. We did the version with the 3a and 4b pitches instead of the 5c at P2. I led P1 3a, P3 4b, P5 5b, P8 5c. Steve led the others running P6 and 7 together. [ edit log ] - AltLd O/S - 01/Jul/11 with Charley Fell, Kevin Tithe, Steven Fletcher

Multipitch Awsome climb
Tithe Technique - AltLd O/S - 01/Jul/11 with Charley Fell

Brillant route to finish the holiday on. Really enjoyed it. We did the 5c pitch as the second pitch (Kev led) which was really nice. I did the other two 5c pitches and ran the 3a & 5c into one. Not sure if we did the correct line on the 5b ptich. We went up the crack at the end which I though was the 5b move but Ange & Steve said the route should of gone around to the right.

Completed route this time. I led pitches 1,2,4,6 & 7. Jeanie led pitches 3,5 & 8. Pitches 7 & 8 can easily be combined.

2nd last pitch the nicest.
Mike_Watson_99 - AltLd - 14/Jul/10 with Fiona

Led even pitches including the 5c variant for pitch 2. Pitches 2, 4, and 6 were lovely, 8 was a bit dirty. Nice climb, good of different stuff. Took 4hr 45 mins due to the large queues above! Gets D- in the local guide.

Missed out the top pitch as path off was too tempting. Really nice 5c pitch, fun 5b and first 4b pitches too.
