18m. south of Chamonix (not Little Chamonix)you will see a Chimney with a hanging chockstone. Climb the short obvious chimney of 20ft, easy enough to a stance and probably for the best, a belay. The next part of the first pitch/second pitch really, is extremely polished and you can not get gear in. You just have to go for it. As you ascend the ridge from the tree area which connects to several climbs including the middle of Little Chamonix, the climbing is of a good MS standard. Originally this whole climb was a VD - which was nuts. But climbers must have their wits about them not to miss the point of the whole climb: the last pitch, hence 'Crescendo'. As you reach the top near the Belvedere, you must descend slightly to do the final short pitch which traverses and ascends a shallow scoop on the face and leads you up to middle of the Belvedere proper. The rock is very grippy with not a hint of polish (it is well-skipped). This is what makes the climb a HS, if it is ommitted then the climb is a MS, but just think, back in the 60s before all this good gear we have, those boys regarded this as a VD! While the tiny traverse is very technical, the rock is very good, although it is very hard to protect. Micros are of immense use when you get to the ledge as there are a couple of small cracks - a #1 wire will fit, but will not look like it will hold, thus use a micro. Excellent climb.

First pitch was interesting, with all but one piece of gear on the polished section after the chockstone... Then It was a bit of a free for all through the wilderness to the top, battling ants and avoiding rooks throughout! The last pitch (after the wilderness) which probably wasn't even the intended last pitch was actually quite cool! little traverse leading to a corner crux to the top out, two dodgy small wires to protect (more mental protection than anything else). Weird route!

A bit of an epic ! Greg led Pitch 1 - very bold, on large enough holds but very polished. I led second pitch but had a nightmare trying to find the route. Followed the polish up "Little Chamonix" then tried "The Bludgeon" until it got very hard very quickly ! Then headed the correct way (left !) and still got lost (someone else did as well based on the stuck cam) but finally got it right. By that time the head was fried and the final "crescendo" traverse was even a bit of a relief ! Just remember, if in doubt head left !

Ballsy polished section led by john!! Made a hash of second pitch, best to climb thru and not waste energy trying to protect!! (Note to self)

Led P1, P3. Went under the chockstone which was great fun! Did the middle option on P3, the left trending line, small cams useful. Wasn't sure where last pitch went, pointless line, so missed it out.

Started up this route but finished up Little Chamonix.My first lead - thanks Les. You may not believe this but when I was on route a bloke soloed past me and Les (who knew his climbing history) shouted over to him, "No roller skates and boxing gloves today then!" Apparently the 'bloke' who soloed past me on my first ever lead was the guy who soloed Little Chamonix in roller skates and boxing gloves. How is that for a memorable first lead.
