We climbed as a party of 3 and did not have to wait in line....sweet! We climbed the route in 3 pitches with a 60M rope.
I lead/combined P1 and P2. Rudy led the other two pitches passing a party along the way.

I had successfully climbed the entirety of the route 2 years earlier. The first time I led it I had combined pitches 1 and 2 and that seemed to work pretty well, although the sloping belay ledge made me think I had stopped too soon. This last time I led it with a 60m rope I ended up combining, according to this page, pitches 1,2, and 3 into a single pitch. I would not recommend it. I was very tired, and I was very short on gear. Also, I did that part about stepping left to avoid the roof because I didn't have enough big pieces, and yeah, it was hard to protect to the point of not having any pro.

A classic full-value climb.

miztflipOne of my first leads  Sucess!


Bastille was one of my first leads. I've climbed with with my wife over the years on at least 4 occasions. Remarkably I have never been on the route when others were climbing.

Awesome route! You can combine several pitches to make this go faster. Be solid with gear and trad climbing at the 5.7+ Eldo level! Enjoy!
