βeta: You don't need doubles for this climb. Did it all on a 70m single - could certainly get away with shorter - longest pitch is 35m and longest ab is about 20. Camp to camp Topo is decent when Google translated (ps gendarme = pinnacle ). No gear needed other than a couple of slings.

ewanjp 30 Oct, 2019 Lead O/S Led all pitches. Thought it was fairly graded, prob wouldn't be 5c if it wasn't for the polish on pitch 6 and 7 (nothing compared to polish in the UK mind!). Great day out.
