( ED inf / 300 m / 6a A1) Nice trad climb, the easiest route on Grand Capucin. Better to avoid the roof and switch to "Sole mio". Very sunny and .. popular prepare to share belays. Glacier approach..

Descent Options:

rap first in "Sole mio" and then, on the big ledge, rap in the big corner of the Swiss route.

The route isn't that hard but some of the pitches have sandbag nature. Don't be too surprised if some of the 5+ sections feel a bit hardish. The ascent took us 7 hours from the bergshrund to the top.
