Le Ticket, Le Carre, Le Rond, et La Lune

This beautiful route is located on the North Face of the Aiguille du Peigne, high above the village of Chamonix in the French Alps. The seven pitch 5.10 follows a classic direct line up the center of the face involving face climbing, jamcracks, and liebacks.

This picture was taken in 1985, shortly after the lycra fad had taken off in the States. During our entire 2 1/2 months in Europe, we saw no one else sporting the fabric, and were asked countless times where we had got our pants. If I had anything to do with introducing Lycra to the Euros, I apologize profusely...
