Description:

Another crack route in what is known as Little Yosemite at the start of the 1st Nantillon point. Major 2nd and 3rd pitches to protect yourself in cracks. Rest of the route like the french would say, rather 'Quelquonque' in the 5c-6a range, with fun last pitches on slabby granit with knobs (think Lotus tower).

Descent Options:

rappel. Careful as many options to get it stuck.

5 out of 5 stars Guy-Anne l'insolite

I think insolite means suprising, but in a good way. If so, that describes the climb well. Excellent route with lots of variety. Mixed, some bolts where needed. Crux is a finger crack with some lie back moves. Comes to a small point on top. Rap down the route.
With Greg leading harder pitches.

4 out of 5 stars May in envers

Last route in Little Yosemite, great for the first 3 pitches, the rest ok, just long. Fun on the final knobs. I believe we did not do the last pitch to the summit.
