200m, 7 pitches. UIAA VI+ (the Piola guide gives the crux pitch French 6a/b). Some in situ aid. Harder and more sustained than the Voie Couzy.

Sustained route, crux pitch was very hard and required some peg pulling. 5 hours on the route, topped out just as the storms were starting. Miserable descent in heavy thunder storms, missed last bin, 3.5 hours descending.

Used a little aid where I went the wrong way one place. Did the cruxes free.

Brilliant route - really enjoyable day out.

Done in French free style - using fifi hook for rests on pegs but not aid slings. We started late to avoid crowds and got down before dark but missed last telepherique. Walked down through forest, head-torch failed and stumbled into Bar National at 3 a.m.
