1) 4c, 25m. Pitch 1 of Scorpion or Little Chamonix.
2) 5b, 26m. Climb the groove just left of Little Chamonix and, at an overhang, step left and up a short corner. Move up steeply to below a huge leaning pinnacle and climb the right-hand side to its top (large sling). Finish up the crack in the headwall directly above. Exposed. © Rockfax
