An unsung gem that climbs the rocky rib left of Vandal and Anne. Bold and with groundfall potential from high on the route. Would benefit from some more traffic since it can get very mossy and lichenous.
Scramble up to the nose and some small wire placements. Move left and up to find yourself well and truely committed. Delicate slab moves up the arete above will eventually lead to the top and easier ground. Exit right to the belay and equiped abseil above Bridle Piton Slab.
There is a continuation pitch that follows the broken and cracked wall directly above the top out of P1, rarely done and even more covered in moss.
