25m. A superb pitch in this fine mountain setting. Follows the striking slim groove line on this isolated buttress, the long walk being part of the overall experience ! Very sustained and technical, once the groove is entered, with the good protection making it all the more enjoyable.
Start below and left of the groove line at an embedded flake.
Commit off this onto the wall and using a series of layaways head into the base of the groove and pull onto the “resting foot ledge”. Unravel the intricacies, first right, then back left, until the peg can be clipped. A perplexing and strenuous sequence then leads to the deserved reward of big holds and a nice view down the groove ! Step right then up the short walls to the platform at the top.
