A great day out. The approach was checked by doing Alabets, a 10 pitch and harder 6a+ 2 days before. Took 7hrs to the summit and 2hrs 15mins down - we did find the path! Lots of easier ground but you do need to be quick.

A seriously big day out! Quite an adventure. Long slabby pitches low down. Found the crux pitch pretty tough to deal with after covering so much ground already in the hot sun. It was very well protected though. For me the best bit was probably the spectacular exposed rib pitch on the arete as a fitting finale. Aid pitch is a very short bolt-pull across a featureless slab to reach the belay.
8h30 to P25 if I remember rightly. We pitched the rest of the ridge for safety although we had soloed it a few days previously. We were keeping up 20 minute pitches but lost a bit of momentum after the relief of getting through the crux! The descent through the forest was pretty hellish - very steep through undergrowth with no path for the first part, and a constant worry of tumbling over a crag. Definitely worth getting met at the Poele de Frire if you can possibly arrange it.

Awesome route - by far the longest I've ever done. Made it to the top in just over 8.5 hrs. Found the route well bolted throughout except for the final easy section to the top. The descent was a bit annoying, only just finding the path in the woods as it got dark.

15 hrs to summit and back to van. How can a 1000m route be 6a+? TD
