Rockfax Description
II, 170m. A great crack climb, with an equally good name.
1) 6a. Climb a series of flakes and cracks leftwards and then back right to belay just beneath a roof.
2) 6b+. Make a stiff pull through the roof then climb easier flakes to belay beneath some wide cracks.
3) 6b. Climb the wide cracks and step right to an exposed stance.
4) 6b. Step left and climb the wide off-width crack that leads out left across an exposed hanging slab.
5) 6a. Step left from the belay and head up a narrowing crack a couple of metres left of the ridge crest directly above the stance. Be careful not to go too far left and stray onto the final chimney pitch of Les Diamants du Président.
Descent - Abseil back down the route. © Rockfax
