alexm198 8 Jun, 2019 AltLd O/S Long day but a quality route. Climbed in three blocks of 6 pitches. Led pitches 1-6 and then a couple of easy bits at the end (19 and 20) to get us to the top. Pulled on the gear at the second roof, but wished I hadn't - padding across the slab would've been OK. Most pitches are VS-E1 with pitches 7-9 probably being around E3...? Scrambled up to La Esfinge summit in the dark and then down to the rappels. Long, dehydrated stumble across interminable talus on the way back to camp. How nice to actually climb something on an expedition for once!
