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.

Some lovely climbing up the corner and slabs above, to meet the Papillon Ridge at the top. Did some ridiculous 70m pitch by joining the 1st two pitches together and some simul-climbing! Drag to end all drag :( Gripped out of my mind on the delicate slabby moves (p3+p4), and very relived to make it safely to the easy top pitch. Abseiled back down the route, which turned out to be its own mini-adventure with a random selection of dodgy-looking fixed gear and stuck ropes on every bloody abseil!

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.
