Simon Caldwell 2 Jun AltLd O/S In 4 pitches, C led the odd ones. P1 to the start of Amen Corner; P2 to the foot of the Aiguille du Trou; P3 to the top of the tower; P4 across the final slab. P1 was excellent and tricky for the grade. P2 was exciting timing the crossing of the corner with the waves coming in (I looked at the green chimney but it was soaking wet and slimy). P3 was good (beware gull's nest on the top of the tower). P4 - I've no idea where this is supposed to go! The "short shelf" was more like a short ramp, and finished at a long horizontal fault. Going diagonally up and left as per the book was impossible at the grade, being a steep dirty holdless slab. The promised detached flake on the skyline could have been one of many such things. So I followed the fault for a few metres, before taking a diagonal line up leftwards, nice climbing but harder than Diff! Overall, an interesting route for the grade and well worth climbing, a great little adventure. But could do with some clarification of P4 in the next edition!

Calum3610 27 Jun, 2018 Solo Soloed all of this route apart from the last up-climb at the end, where we branched off to do Ginhouse. As we'd already done the hardest part of the route, I'd say it deserves a tick =)
