Rockfax Description
The easiest route on the face and consequently a popular excursion for newcomers to trad climbing. Generally good rock and a logical line.
Start on the right side of the split in the face, just right of Via Irma.
1) IV+, 25m. Climb a crack, initially easy then becoming steeper, to a stance on the left.
2) IV, 30m. Continue in the same line following the continuation crack.
3) IV-, 35m. Continue in the crack then follow the corner-chimney above.
4) IV-, 35m. Aim for the roof above, climbing the right of three wide cracks, then move diagonally right below the roof to a yellow niche.
5) IV, 40m. Climb direct up a corner-chimney, overcoming an bulge on good holds, to a stance on a ledge.
6) IV, 40m. Climb direct from the belay and enter a narrow chimney crack. Climb this - sometimes wet - then exit left for a couple of moves before moving back into the chimney. Continue more easily on the left to a ledge.
7) IV, 35m. Climb the cracked rock above, moving right. Overcome a bulge and continue in the crack before making a short traverse right to the stance in a niche below a ramp.
8) III+, 30m. Climb the vegetated ramp more easily.
9) III, 30m. Continue in the same line.
10) II, 25m. Easy scrambling leads to the Chamois Terrace. © Rockfax

jonathan_doyle 8 Sep, 2018 AltLd O/S Went 'off piste' on the first pitch, wanted to be much more left. Felt a bit harder than IV as a result. Some great chimney sections. I great first route to get you into that alpine mindset.

George Frisby 26 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S Good cracks at the start and very good chimney in the middle. Although some worse loose pitches too. Hard to find some of the belays too from the rockfax description.

HP9 29 Sep, 2016 AltLd L 1,3,5,6,8,9. Lovely easy climbing all the way. Shaded until P6. Lengths of P4 and 5 doesn't seem accurate (Rockfax)but the total distance of both is the same as the books description. P 8 and 9 can be joined together on 60m ropes. Couldn't find anything resembling the descent, so ended up with multiple abs down a very steep gully ( some bolts and tat). Over 2 hrs to descend.
