Best climb on the Orthanc pinnacle. Strong line. Nice climbing, and very little loose rock - unlike the climbs finishing on the front of the tower.

much easier than it looks and well protected although some of the gear is fiddly. Mid grade VDiff. Not unusually loose - for limestone mostly solid and very few / no really worrying blocks although I didn't put gear behind some blocks just in case they parted company with the cliff. The actual line low down is feet a bit to the right of the crack. I think this would be a 2-3 star classic if the first half wasn't so escapable. Still very good climbing for VDiff. Easily worth 1 star.

Straight forward VD. loads of gear. Watch out for chose. Descent but gully to right with absail as very dusty underfoot. loose rock dislodge caution needed on descent.

Enjoyable climb with plenty of options for practicing gear placement. Suggest ab'ing off tree down descent gulley for easy rope retrieval.
