150m.

Rockfax Description
185m. A good fully bolted route with consistent difficulty throughout. The start is hidden on the vague rib roughly 10m right of Mani Puliti, below and right of an overlap. The first bolt is not visible from the ground but it soon appears.
1) 4c, 50m. Climb broken, slabby ground drifting rightwards throughout to a bolted belay.
2) 4c, 15m. A much shorter pitch which leads to a peg/bolt belay beneath a low-angled slab.
3) 4c, 35m. Head up the slab and the wall above before moving left at the top.
4) 4b, 30m. Climb up directly to the summit tower, ignoring the line of bolts on the right (which are part of Nez Rouge).
5) 3a, 25m. Scramble easily rightwards to a stance just below and right of an overlap.
6) 5a, 30m. Climb the superb rib above to a stunning belay with perfect views across the Mont Blanc massif. © Rockfax

βeta: Not so well bolted as Rockfax makes out, someone climbing at yheir limit might like some more gear. In trainers except the last pitch

βeta: there is a bolted belay after about 40m on the first pitch, followed by about a 15m unprotected pitch to reach the next slightly hanging bolted belay... so ignore the rockfax 50m first pitch! also its 3c at most, not 4c! the 4b pitch is much easier than it looks, trust the bolts go the right way! ignore the rockfax topo as usual.
