BETA PHOTO: Chamonix


Starts right next to The Roof, following edges and flakes up and to the right, then straight up with precise thin holds and edges.

The crux is getting up the sparse face that dominates the upper half of the climb.

Lots of fun


A few feet to the right of The Roof, it's the obvious line of flakes and edges.


A couple haggard looking trees can be slung for a top rope anchor.

The roof's kid brother packs a punch!
I feel like this route lives in the shadow of the roof, but is way more fun in my opinion. Rating is spot on once you know what to look for, but the beta can be a bit tricky on the top half of the climb if you stay left. A definite must climb!
