Led p1, think I combined 3 and 4 and then did the 5c/+avoiding pitch for the 6b, led p5 and p7. Very popular! Some great climbing on all pitches. A good fun route

Did the 6b variant, which I found hard with a sack on. Sitting on top of the spire to belay was awesome.

Amazing climb, well worth doing. Lead P2, P3 and P6. P3 was awesome, really fun climbing and great exposure. Abbed off after P6.

Did P2 plus 6b pitch. Nice climbing on a wet day.
davkeo - AltLd O/S - 14/Jun/15 with Ken Doyle, Niall Hedderman
Great climb, walked from Chamonix in 3 and a half hours as the lifts weren't running. Residual snow from the Planpraz meant crampons or snow shoes were needed for the latter half of the approach. Opted for the 4c start, and climbed with backpacks, walked off after P4.

Led the odd number pitches. Really enjoyed the third pitch. Good climb, although rather feels like two separate routes.

Good fun, sound rock. 6b pitch has one hanger missing, but this doesn't affect the crux.

The start on the first pitch was difficult, looked easy but it was tough! Great climb once I was past the first pitch.

Led majority of pitches, all clean except for the 6b move which I fell off a few times before getting - super polished foot hold! More fun than I thought it would be.

Great interesting route. Did the 5c pitch instead of the 6b, good moves stepping over the drop onto the side wall of the arete. Also did Le Cheval at the top of the needle!
