Begin up the flake/pinnacle at the base of the spire and from its top head up and then right on slabbier ground to a short narrow groove. Climb the groove and exit with difficulty before finishing more easily up the headwall. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
An interesting route up the centre of Orthanc. Climb the slightly off-balance slab, trending rightwards to gain a blind groove. Work up the groove to exit it with an exciting mantelshelf move and continue to easier climbing up the rib above.
