220m, 8 pitches.

Rockfax Description
II, 230m. A tough challenge which feels pretty adventurous for a sport climb! Immaculate rock.
1) 6a, 25m. Drift leftwards up the enjoyable wall.
2) 6b, 35m. The difficulties are packed into the first 10m - the rest is easier on steep and positive holds.
3) 6b+, 35m. A stunning pitch with a few tricky moves on the crest of the pillar.
4) 6c, 10m. Make an exposed traverse left under the roof and exit at the far end. Fantastic!
5) 6b, 40m. A technical and long pitch to a hanging stance.
6) 6b+, 25m. A magnificent, difficult and steep pitch that starts by passing an overhang on its right on bright orange rock 5m above the belay. Good holds.
7) 6b, 35m. Steep, featured and enjoyable climbing leads to an easy-to-miss belay on the right at the end of the pitch. Beautiful compact rock.
8) 6a, 25m. A short, relatively straightforward pitch to finish. © Rockfax

Kike Kikon 19 Jul, 2019 AltLd O/S Elsa linked P1 and P2. Then I took a wrong line a bit too much to the left and stopped at a belay some 20m below the roof. Next pitch linked with the roof traverse. These two pitches don't belong to the route but we're awesome and about 6c, maybe 7a. Elsa also linked the two pitches after the 6c traverse.

Brilliant climbing on all the pitches. Felt pretty close to coming off on the 6b pitch that followed the crux, not used to working that hard at altitude!

John Carney 28 Sep, 2013 AltLd O/S We found this rather easier than Poeme a Lou which in itself was not particularly hard given the 6c grades attached to the topos...nevertheless, this was another good voyage up to the ski lift on generally sound rock. No real crux on any pitch, and plenty of nice run-outs on easy, juggy stuff. Nice mini layback coda to the final small headwall. I would give this route a 6b/5c obl rating.
