Bada Bing*** 6c+
[Bada Bing, Les Perrons. Pitch 8, first ascent. , 2 kb]370m, 8 pitches. An excellent route taking the striking red pillar towards the right hand end of the face. The first part of the route isn't too hard but the upper half is very sustained. Start at the base of the short narrow couloir at the right end of the face. Take 17 quickdraws and 2x50 - or better 2x55 or 60. 6c Oblig. (The fifth pitch is more like 52m, so the second has to be ready to start... However there's no problem abseiling with 2x50 as it is more direct than the pitch - tie a knot in the end of the rope, anyway...) Read carefully the notes on the topo regarding the descent. Descent: abseil back down the route.
