Note: 1. The original Topo is correct, but: 2: The 1/6/2004 repetition was done in 6 pitches rather than 12p in 1981. 3: The route marked on the original photo is erroneus, correct line is now marked as a dashed instead of dotted line (see picture) 4: The difficulty is underestimated in comparison to the standard Sinai grading; thus the flared bridging move (about 25m above the base of the route) is estimated at 5a in the french quotation and the last two pitches at 6a. 5: Towards the end of the route, the quality of the granite leaves much to be desired but the protection is good. 6: There are several "windows" on the route, one of them, at stance 8 of the original 1981 climb is very conspicuous, 5m high by 3m wide. Avoid climbind it and continue on the wall itself. Good Luck
