200m, 9 pitches.

Rockfax Description
200m. The longest route at Chéserys but not one of the best. The climbing is good in the lower section but the top half is broken and grassy in places. That said, if the other routes are busy or you just fancy a longer route, this is a fun little adventure. Abseiling back down is awkward as the route goes diagonally so many people opt to carry their packs up the route and then walk up about 200m to the track coming down from Lac Blanc and descending this back to the car park.
1) 5a, 2) 4c, 3) 5b, 4) 5b, 5) 4c.
From here, walk across the grass, climb the small bulge and continue easily to a belay in the middle of a grassy slope. Walk/scramble over a mix of rock and grass to a stance at the foot of a slab.
6) 5a. A little bouldery move off the belay is the crux.
7) 3c. After this the climbing kicks back in both angle and difficulty. From here, continue up easy slabs to the top of the crag. There are bolts to show you the way and the climbing is very straightforward. © Rockfax

Lovely route on good rock. Unless you are going to walk off the top, the final few easier pitches may not be worthwhile (although they are pleasant). From the top of the hard pitches, abseil down the top hard pitch, then two abseils straight down (2 bolts + mallion belay) will get you down onto the grass. Abseil points ~30m apart, so can be done on a 70m rope.

Great route with plenty of exposure. You sort of hug the side with the arete on good rock but with some challenging parts. I think we found ourselves on a more difficult route in the upper section, so watch out. 6 abseils to get down.

We ended up doing 7pitches, intentionally stringing the last two together (although having to move together for 10m with 50's) but somehow making the first 5 pitches into 4 without noticing. There is a new line from p.3/4 to p.4/5, we stuck close to the arête and this section was the crux, however just left looked slightly easier. Fairly well bolted with lots of new bolts (although some needed a tighten). Not quite as ladder like as some of the other easy routes further east. Moderately blank slab climbing for the grade. We decided to walk up to the track 200m from the top of the climb and walked back down to the car along the ridge and descent eastwards, this made a nice mountain route and took us 4hours in total.
