A strange climb weaving around the chimney to the right. Essentially a bad beta version of the chimney. Pull steeply up blocky terrain to start, then continue up the cracked arete to a handjam slot before stepping back into the chimney to finish. A 6a eliminate direct finish is possible.

With the 6a eliminate at the top. Surprisingly good climbing!

Nice route. Gear was adequate with a nice bouldery start on good holds.

Took my time over the crux, finding it hard to predict what was coming, but the climbing was not too hard and gear was good. On reflection I think this is E2.

Felt quite stiff for the 5c warm-up! Lead with first 3 bits of gear insitu. PS Very reminiscent of La Turbie........NOT!

Jason led it smoothly. The direct finish is unnecessary but quite doable - avoids going back into the grotty chimney.

I didnt see any visions of Monaco, plenty broken glass though, quite nice climbing.

An awesome route, steep to start then eases after the crux; amazing body potions required for the highly angled crux, great gear. Fell on the crux, should have chilled out and taken my time, still hard but got it fine second time. Clean ground up.
