The arete/face left and around the corner from Goulara. Sustained and interesting climbing with great exposure. One 5.9+ or 10a move followed by mostly-5.8 climbing. Clip the first 3 bolts of Goulara, turn the arete to the left and follow bolts to the top. Note: the crux of the route is reaching the first bolt; most climbers will want to stick-clip.

Led. Thanks, Matthew, for the route name... Great route on arete and then around on the left side face.

A very striking line! I can't believe this one went un-equipped and un-led for so long. Thank-you to Romain "L'Economiste" Wacziarg for inspiring me to put some time and energy into this project.
