Went up to do frise Roche, but ended up doing this as it was rainy. Led P1, P2, P4, P5 and P6. Nice but escapable throughout and discontinuous.

Came up to do Voie Frison-Roche, but it was soaking. This route is good value. In Ellie's words 'I can see how it would be nice in the dry.

Good climb for a dodgy weather day - escape possible at pretty much every belay.

Belays of unusual size (BOUS!), pretty straighfowards but lovely climbing in an epic setting. Saw someone throw themselves off Brevent in a wingsuit on pitch 1.

First climb in the Alps, cloudy day, couldn't see anything apart from the route. Still fantastic climbing! Didn't do last two pitches as came across a massive rock fall in the snow!

Great route, 4c fluting pitch felt the hardest pitch. Lead P1, P2, P4, P6 + P7. Shame about the abseil midway but it was good practice all the same

Good steep longish route. Thought the abseil down to reach the penultimate pitch would let it down but the students enjoyed that part.
