East Face (Aureille-Feutren Route) >>
|400m, 13 pitches. This is the best route on the face and an established classic. It takes a direct line on excellent granite with the crux occurring on the fist pitch. The face is steep and receives a lot of sun ensuring that the climb rapidly comes into condition after bad weather. 6hr from hut. |
