Local guidebook and general guidebook give different grades for the climb. MN did the two "5c" pitches, which were both fine even including the crux...which has a bit of tat on if you wanted it. Accidentally belayed from La Cocarde. New abseil points at top link with the old gully abseils. Did it on a cool day, great views. Nice French guide followed us up. Good belay conversations.

PN led p1,3,5,7. 4 abs to the ground. Excellent climb. Very relaxed as we were last on the route and behind a number of other teams. 4.5 hours from start to finish. Tricky traverse on p.3. 7 pitches.
