270m, 6 pitches. superb crack at French 5b, then ungradable chimney, easyish but unprotected. The first part of the route is well worth doing.

Ticklists: Classic Valle dell'Orco Cracks.

Did the crack rather than the chimney, crack was really nice climbing

First 4 pitches only - got rained off. Did top 2 pitches next day - fabulous climbing.

Brilliant birthday climb, second part of the route not great and abandoned feeling. An 'unforgettable' chimney.

First four pitches only. Did the original route up the awesome airy chimney - well worth doing this way.

2nd to last pitch was my favourite, traverse to the chimney terrifying! should have done the 5c variation as traverse and chimney aren't very good.

Good old fashioned route, swung leads with Seb, who took the harder pitches including the curving corner variation (UK5bish) on P3. Good to see there are no bolts aside from the belay anchors. Worth continuing above the terrace, P5 and 6 are cool.

Chimney pitch was terrifying! And wet. Second part above the ledge was 't that hard to find. Crux pitch was really very good, thin finger lay-back up a steep and difficult corner.

Shame it's broken by ledges and stuff because the good climbing is really very good. Did the 5c Diedre variation instead of the easy squeeze. Finished on an anchor just below the "variation over a bolted roof out left" since it's currently unbolted.

Brilliant route, though a pity about the midway ledge. Slipped off on the 6a pitch, gutted! Got it 2nd go. 5c variation pitch lower down is worth it (especially if you don't like chimneys...)

Second part of the route is the hard part at F6b (finger crack then handjam). All belays bolted.
