Rockfax Description
This excellent route fills the gap between the arete and the corner of Diedre Sud. Start from the base of the corner and trend leftwards up the wall, to the break. (It is possible to take a belay on the left at the break). From the break continue straight up some cracks above to the top. © Rockfax

Lovely climbing throughout. Needed 1 short rest on the crux as it was just a bit too tiring..

AJM 27/Aug/17 Lead O/S

From the arete stance. Crag crowded and infested with flying ants! Very good route.

Abbed in earlier in the day to find the belay ledge wave washed. Climbed back out up Deidre Sud. Glad I persevered and came back later as loved the route. Lovely climbing on immaculate, well featured rock. Good moves on the crux over the overlap. In one pitch.

Feeling bold 28/Sep/14 2nd dog

I was told it was an HVS! All went well until approach to overhang when had mini meltdown due to tiredness and inability to read route at this point. Had couple of rests or more and tight rope to get me moving on and sweeping up the gear. Was a nice route, just beat me in the middle. Climbed in one pitch.
