50m, 2 pitches. Start round the corner 30m beyond the original start at the huge mossy diedre. Climb up 5 or 6 metres then traverse the left wall (steep but good handholds) to reach a fairly short crack (crux) which gives access up and left to the apex of the nose. Continue upwards to meet the original route at the beginning of pitch 3.
