Rockfax Description
Start just right of Crescendo's chimney at a dark streak.
1) 4c, 30m. Follow the dark streak to a ledge, then climb the steep broken cracks to the terrace. Move up right to a tree belay shared with Little Chamonix.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb to midway up Little Chamonix's groove then traverse left at a thin crack to an overhang. Move up its left side and continue traversing until it is possible to climb up a tricky groove to finish. © Rockfax
