4 out of 5 stars Hard work

The first pitch was delicate for its grade on a couple moves. The final off-width I found to be a lot of grunt work, and more effort than I expected at this grade, though not committing.

You get a lovely view out over the valley from the top, unlike many of the shorter climbs at Montagne D'Argent.
