description

Approach 45mins

From Chamonix, park on the left 500 metres before the Col des Montets. Follow the footpath for Les Chéserys to near the bottom of the slabs. A small track leads from the main path to the foot of the crag.
The route is in the centre of the crag, to the left of the obvious detached slab of Voie Bleu, and starts up a slab with three lines of bolts. http://www.camptocamp.org/routes/172650/en

L1 5a The middle line of bolts, 5b for the variations to the right and left.
L2 4c Traverse to the left.
L3 3a
L4 5b Great pitch, needing some stamina, (use long or extended quickdraws to avoid rope drag).
L5 4c

Descent

Abseiling down the route requires a pendulum on the second abseil and a traverse on the third. It is perhaps preferable to take the equipped line in the gully, (to the right looking up.)

remarks

The route is called "Voie de l'EHM" in some guidebooks. Ecole (Militaire) de la Haute Montagne.
Leading the route in army boots being a bit of a test piece in the times gone bye!
