Poor route description! No wonder so many people get lost...after pinnacle, walk up to crack - look right for crack. Then walk along two narrow walkways firstly 80m, then back about 30m...you'll see a solitary bolt. Here it says take the easiest and furthest right route up...wrong, this will lead you up a sketchy and loose gully - not fun! Head up the overlapping slabs corner pitch!

Very cool route, quite easy, although I think we did get a bit lost. I got smacked on the head by a 2lb rock from the party above. Helmet saved my life. Finished up Arete du Papillons.

Very enjoyable climbing - nice to come back and finish it after having to back off due to damp and cold in 2006. Led P2&4.
