Rockfax Description
II, 195m. Considered by many to be the best route of the Brévent. The climbing is enjoyable throughout, the bolting is excellent and the final pitch would be a classic at any crag.
1) 6a, 45m. Gear up on a terrace with two bolts. Start by stepping left and climbing a steep pillar (5b) and then up a steep slab, past one 6a move which can be missed out by moving left.
2) 5b, 30m. Climb the broken blocks and traverse up rightwards to a belay on a terrace.
3) 5b, 30m. Move up from the belay and follow the ramp-line out rightwards in an amazing position to a small belay beneath a corner.
4) 6a, 40m. Climb the corner for 5m, then climb slabs to reach a steep corner-crack. This is physical and/or technical depending on your skill level and leads to a spacious belay on a large ledge.
5) 2a, 20m. A linking pitch across the ledge leftwards - make a couple of grassy moves then go right to the foot of the corner.
6) 5c, 30m. Climb the corner, past a tricky move about halfway up, to a belay just below the viewing platform. © Rockfax

With a storm due at 14:00 and the lift running from 9:50 I was a little worried. But really didn't need to be. Felt like a 6a sport climb and not TD-. Great climbing. Great position. Amazing last pitch. 1 hour 50. Lift to lift.

long climb and tiring with backpacks but SO worth it

WillWambam 08/Sep/17 Lead O/S

Busy. Gorgeous day and amazing atmosphere. Was initially a little apprehensive RE the 6a crux of pitch 4 after reading comments but it turned out to be much better than I had feared. Only ~5m of crux, a little pumpy but plenty of holds. P3 felt quite airy and the last pitch is indeed a great end. Well bolted (no need for extra gear) though not all anchor points were backed up and the two that were, only with cord. Also, only A2 had a maillon for rappel. So any emergency rapps would leave gear behind. Not sure what the TD- grade is about, maybe because of exposure/airyness?

Awesome exposure that was all the more atmospheric in the thick mist. I may have steadied myself by holding onto the odd quickdraw. And the pitch I led was the easiest by some margin. I would have led the final perfect pitch but we were running late for the last cable car so speed climbing was in order, which made it all the more fun. Topped out with seconds to spare (the lift operator and other passengers were waiting for us at the top of the crag :-) )

Really fun, but very busy and if you are not used to this type of climbing, feels far harder than grades suggest! People climb in mountain boots so the crack pitch is easier (foot jamming)...if you've got a bag on, gear on you and lead every pitch I guarantee you'll find some pitches hard despite the easy grades suggested. IF this is at your limit, be warned, you'll find it hard, exposed and scary... For everyone else, it is great fun!!! Wingsuit jumpers flying overhead - really fun climbing!

Bit of a crazy experience on the last day before the lift closed. Initially had to wait at pitch 1 while a group of 4 climbing as two pairs with one set of quick draws climbed pitch 1. After the second leader fell off we climbed past the groups. At pitch 4 we caught up with another pair who we're having to aid up the route using slings on every bolt. Thankfully we made the last lift back. Led p1, p2 and p4.

Top two pitches fantastic. Especially top which I led. Not hard but lovely rock and flowing moves with nice variation.

Rob84 16/Aug/14 AltLd dnf

Another one we didn't finish due to poor weather - an un-forecasted snow storm soaked the rock at the top of pitch 2. Again, cracking climbing up to there and well worth seeking out.

Superb route! Seb led the first pitch and then I led pitches 2, 3 & 4, which were excellent! Pitch 4 was epic, very hard (for me) and a real challenge!!! Absolutely shattered after pitch 4 but still wanted to lead the last pitch.... Got to within 4 mtrs of the top but couldn't make the last few moves as my arms were completely shot, totally cramped forearms & hands..... Lowered off and Seb finished it and then I managed to second it. Next time........

We set off to do this route, but by miss reading the guidebook and seeing a line of bolts we thought we were doing the 6a start but instead the bolts went the other side of the gorge, right of the actual route, the bolts were good so we carried on to the top. 5 pitches, brilliantly bolted and a crux pitch of about 6b+. Must be very new though because it is not in the guidebook and also hasn't been logged as a new route at the guides office yet either!

A superb route and very atmospheric in the drifting clouds. Pitches 1 to 3 are a breeze, 4 is very good value with the crux corner crack giving a good battle, pitch 5 has to be one of the best grade 5 pitches out there surely....
