Good value! Tricky in places, and probably more like D- than AD-! We climbed in approach shoes, as the approach was completely snow free.

with Nico Collonges. I lead the 2 hardest pitches (both 5b) in big boots, but the first of those i had to pull on a freind, (Nico had already backed off it). NTE. C2C has this doute as D not AD- rock is slabby Granite with tiny holds in places and in big boots can be really nerve wracking, esp 1 downclimb on a slab half way along the arete.
