route_history

Partially re-bolted in 2010

description

The route was partially re-bolted in 2010. The bolts on the first pitch are excellent, on the other pitches some of the bolts look a little dated.

Approach 45mins to 1hr

From the parking at Tré le Champ, follow the footpath to the Aiguillette d'Argentière. The route starts up the slabs behind the Aiguillette when in line with the Aig Verte, just to the right of a fault/chimney crack. UTM 32 T 0338317 5094538

Route

L1 5c 45m A superb pitch. Slab climbing with a little overhang. Good bolts in all the right places.
L2 5b 47m Trend diagonally leftwards up slab with 2 overlaps. (Beneath the second overlap there is a bolt and a peg. The next bolt is not visible and is directly above.) There is a chain belay and then a second one just a little higher with a better stance.
L3 5a 45m Slabby, first trending leftwards then back right slightly on easier angled slabs to a chain belay
L4 5b 35m Leftwards up an easy slab to start, then an easy ramp/crack rising to the left with an awkward move left to reach the belay at the top.

Descent

3 abseils straight down from the 4th belay. The first two abseils are 50m
Attention: in the middle of the second abseil, there are loose rocks. Be careful where you put your feet as there are often hikers below.

remarks

  • Facing south, this route is possible early in the season (from the end of April).
  • An excellent short route on good rock.
  • The route is well protected with bolts (though after the 1st pitch sometimes quite far apart and showing their age).
  • All the belays have bolts and chains.

Sensitive areas
There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.

gear

2×50 m ropes, 12 quickdraws.
