150m.

Rockfax Description
185m. A good fully bolted route with consistent difficulty throughout. The start is hidden on the vague rib roughly 10m right of Mani Puliti, below and right of an overlap. The first bolt is not visible from the ground but it soon appears.
Approach - From the top of the Index chairlift, head directly up towards the route following a path on a moraine ridge.
1) 4c, 50m. Climb broken, slabby ground drifting rightwards throughout to a bolted belay.
2) 4c, 15m. A much shorter pitch which leads to a peg/bolt belay beneath a low-angled slab.
3) 4c, 35m. Head up the slab and the wall above before moving left at the top.
4) 4b, 30m. Climb up directly to the summit tower, ignoring the line of bolts on the right (which are part of Nez Rouge).
5) 3a, 25m. Scramble easily rightwards to a stance just below and right of an overlap.
6) 5a, 30m. Climb the superb rib above to a stunning belay with perfect views across the Mont Blanc massif.
Descent - Scramble up from the final belays on the routes to reach the summit of the buttress. From here walk/scramble down a path to reach the gully which separates this buttress from the Index, and descend this easily to a 28m abseil. At the foot of the abseil (which can be downclimbed at 3c) walk directly back to the chairlift. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
On the southeast flank as Mani Puliti and Nez rouge, just to the right of the Index. The route is bolted. (grade may not be same as guidebook, please change if you know)

Blue Straggler 4 Aug, 2018 AltLd Can't remember exactly what I led, maybe P1, P3, P5 and final pitch which was slightly unintentionally the final pitch of Mani Puliti. Not sure what has happened with reported rebolting as there seemed to be more pitches than expected, and lengths didn't match description in guidebook. At the end of P5 there is a belay but then it's just a tiny walk along a grass ledge to another belay (so effectively I stole P6 - our "P7") from John, sorry mate.

jalqazzaz 18 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S Awesome route. Great for a day off from alpine suffering. First pitch is sparsely bolted but easy. Last pitch was great fun. Bit steeper covered with jugs and great views :). Ps save your lunch for the ledge at the top!!
