FRA  Sucess!

First recorded ascent by Kevin Barton and Andrew Nugara August 7, 2007. Unable to find the easy West Face route, we traversed the face to the prominent South West Ridge. Fourth Class climbing with the odd step of 5.2 to 5.3. Final 70 metres of ridge 5.5 crux. We traversed south to second and third summits, both appearing taller than the first summit we reached. Long and complicated descent via South Face, including 3 rappels and sections of difficult downclimbing.
