Our warm up for Grand Cap. Great route , the crux pitch is must .
Petar Samkov - Lead O/S - 20/Aug/13 with Damqn Petkov Asq Markova

Pitch 1 & 2 run together was a great pitch. As was the frst of the 6b pitches. The topo in Mont Blanc Supercracks is next to useless and we went a bit wrong on the 2nd 6b pitch. Got back on line for the crux which I got clean but, alas, on second.

Point of aid required at the crux. Sustained route.

French free! Matt almost led the crux pitch clean only to fall at the final bulge due to wet holds. I failed on the 6a/b pitch due to lack of commitment when pulling through the small roof.

Superb route but needed to pull on a couple of pegs on the crux pitch, which I led. Topped out over the balcony onto the viewing platform to hoardes of Japenese tourists with big cameras. Quite surreal!
