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

Guide book description is out in a few places, probably since re-bolt, better to find your way by using the force. Excellent final pitch, loads of jugs.

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!!

Needed to get out after two days of rain, climbed in the mist! Lots of snow over the past few days meant cold climbing!

Led the 1st, 2nd (accidentally ran them together) and 4th pitches

led p1, 3, 6. Had a minor saga as Brad fell and twisted his ankle and had to be hauled up which made the scramble descent interesting...

Nice route, did this due to a short weather window...... Moved over to the Mani Puliti for the final pitch as it was a nicer/harder finish.

Active rest day, very pleasant until we missed the last lift by maybe 5 mins and walked down in the rain.

Had issues finding first pitch due to snow so traversed onto the route partway up this, alternated leads with Harriet until getting to the start of pitch 6, finished as for Mani Pulite as there was lots of snow at the bottom of pitch 6.

Consolation route as the brevent lift was unexpectably closed. Nice route.
