UKC Logbook Description
Excellent route, very well bolted. Technical and sustained slab climbing over 14 pitches. Only a couple of pitches below F6a so make sure you can climb slabs well! Descend the route by abseil stations slightly to the right of the route but do not enter the ravine after the first pitch.

βeta: very Ailefroidesque style. Lots of intricate varied slab style climbing until the upper 5/6 pitches that are steeper and stiffer. Note, teams from 'Palavar des Flots' abseil down the upper section without much regard to the debris they knock off..
