120m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
II, 120m. A true alpine classic, this route was immortalised in Rébuffat's own The Mont Blanc Massif: The Hundred Finest Routes book. The crux was originally aided and is now equipped with numerous bits of rope and other paraphernalia. It is in an excellent situation and the rest of the route is superb and varied. The route starts from the far left of the highest ledge, almost at the top of the snow slope leading to the Cosmiques Icefall.
1) 4a, 30m. Cross the ledge easily before climbing a short corner to stand on top of a block. Step rightwards off this and scramble easily up to a belay on a ledge, 15m below and left of the crux overhang.
2) 6a+ or 5b/A0, 30m. Climb the corner then the thin flake-crack which leads to the crux overhang via some increasingly steep ground and good holds. The crux is steep but if you're acclimatised and have your wits about you, there are half decent footholds about to help. Otherwise, pull on whatever is there at the time and let your arms do their stuff! Above the crux, follow the easier groove for 10m to reach a belay at the right-hand edge of a large, sloping ledge.
3) 5c, 30m. Walk to the left along the ledge for 4m and then climb the imposing crack above through the small overhang. If you can't jam, this will feel hard so sandbagging your mate by 'kindly' offering to lead pitch 2 may be worthwhile! Once above the overhang, follow the crack with continual interest and the odd steep pull to an exposed but comfortable ledge.
4) 5b, 25m. More of the same, but a bit easier. Continue up the crack for 20m to a ledge with broken ground above and on the right. Head towards the broken ground by climbing a short corner and belay where the face peters out into scrambling terrain. Pay attention not to knock any of the loose rocks which litter this area onto climbers below. © Rockfax

With heavy packs after overnighting at the Cosmique Hut on completion of Swiss Route, Grand Capucin, making the route feel much tougher than last time ! JP french freed the 6a+ crux and i rested on the ropes. The next pitch is really cool crack climbing, never too hard and allowing some good hand jamming practice, 50m. Finished over Cosmique Arete.

Did alternate start (felt tough) due to connies. With big bags for the full alpine experience. Tiny bit of French free to get across to the lower hold on the roof. Belayed soon after, then interesting lead of top 2 pitches ran together after phil dropped the nuts so had to do a lot of cam walking, pretty gripped!

Rockfall in the gully, too unstable to get to beginning of the first pitch so climbed up direct to the middle of the ledge. About 5c including some 'traditional' back and footing up a chimney.

After looking at the route a year ago and setting our sights for it the following year we managed to complete the route without any major difficulties.

Pitches 1 and 3. Brilliant route, p3 felt cheeky 'cos I'm not great at jamming. All free but there is a peg on the roof crux, and above if you need it. Maybe HVS 5b overall? Finished up the Cosmiques.

Stickle Tarn 11/Aug/16 Lead O/S

In my opinion not as good as the other Rebuffat route on the south face (much shorter and much easier). One awkward move to pull through the roof, felt a little bit like The Sloath at the Roaches ! There was nothing in-situ to aid the move. Some nice crack climbing higher up. We left big bags at the belay after P1 (as we were overnighting in the Cosmique hut before climbing Mt Blanc the following day). We abseiled down to the bags and put boots/crampons on before lowering down to the base of the crag.

Done in rock shoes and abbed down afterwards to avoid carrying much, making it much more enjoyable. Fantastic day! True on-sight as we started lower down the side of the gully due to snow being too soft to get to the top. Actually made a much better P1. I led P1,3,5, including freeing the roof pitch which was utterly spectacular. To me this seemed about f5c / UK 5a. Pitches 4 and 5 were not as easy as our guide suggested ! On returning to the midi we were 'interviewed' by a tourist keen to have a go at mountaineering, right then, who asked, "is it slippery?", "do you actually need crampons", and finally, "so would you sell yours to us then?"!! We politely suggested they contact the guides office.

Near death experience?!! No tracks and went in from below up towards the corner gully, prob should have traversed in above Bergshrund but Bry up to hips (crevasse?) just off the path. Gully was treacherous with mix of loose rock and fluffy snow, rockfall from arête. I led up to and first part of gully roped together and no gear. Made better rock after necky climbing and got geared up. Finally made route start at noon :-( Mistake on first pitch added yet more time (tryjng to follow line in Gastons) End of first pitch decided not in good shape as late so retreated. Bry warned about power lines, then threw rope over, yikes!! We lived. Epic adventure for no tick!!! Never been braver....

Lost my phone, dropped a climbing shoe, the rope was too short for the absails, took a big fall on the 5th pitch and just about made it to the last lift after sprinting back up to the midi! Epic day!

This is the rebuffat not on the sud pilier south face but on the eperon...fyi. very nice- start at the bottom is different from topo as the snowline is really different from photo- we started far to the left as did most others but the rock is extremely loose and delicate here for the first 10 or 15 metres so take care as there is little to no gear, despite the easy grade at the start. Roof section still equipped with pitons and some tat.
