150m, 6 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5+, 2) 6a, 3) 5, 4) 5+, 5) 5+, 6) 5+. Variations on a theme. Start up Les Dalles Grises, but branch right half-way up the first pitch. Climb direct (crux pitch) to its second stance then cross the original route and head direct up slabs, cracks and grooves for four more pitches. There is a tough right-hand variant (6b) to the penultimate pitch if needed. © Rockfax

First time route in the Gorge. 38 deg!! Mind blowing abseil to start followed by 5/6 pitches of good climbing. Nice and technical - pockets, pinches and flakes all requiring good footwork. Really enjoyable maiden voyage even if the last (easiest) pitch got the nerves going due to its exposure. Amazing.

Excellent first few pitches, took wrong line of bolts from a belay and ended up doing last section of AFIN.

Just P3. Then stepped left at end of P3 onto a new route which entered fourth belay of Coco left of the tree. Finished up new route from here, Sean led last pitch through roof up top.

Climbed the standard route which has one 6a pitch (pitch 2) and the rest is 5+. Really enjoyable route....lots of varied climbing and not very polished given it is in a popular area of hte gorge. Highly recommended.

Gareth 02/Oct/11 AltLd O/S

Good climbing, climbed the 5+ penultimate pitch. Nice runouts on great rock.

Sam went off route and had an epic using quickdraws for gear and running the last two pitches into one.

Bold, long run outs to be expected.the 6b element i ended Up top roping. Friend thought element more like a 6c at the crux. Lead clean onsight up to 6a level.
