Les Intouchables

First ascent: M. Piola & H. Bouvard
By: Roberto Rossi
Area: Graian Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Trident du Tacul, Country: France

Without a doubt the hardest route in this collection if climbed completely free. Thankfully though there are many bolts, the cracks accept plenty of pro, and the abseil descent follows the line of ascent.
The "truly strong" can climb the seventh pitch 8a variation, just to the left of the original route (thin crack, bring plenty of small friends, Bassanini variation, 8a 1993)

ACCESS

From Rifugio Torino (3375m) traverse west towards Col des Flambeaux. From here continue beneath the cable car, descend left beneath the north face of Tour Ronde, to then continue at altitude towards Grand Capucin. At the end turn off left, climb up the glacier to a small terrace. A bolt beneath the overhanging crack marks the start of the route (another bolt can be made out roughly halfway up the crack).

DESCENT

Abseil down the route.

GEAR

A full rack of nuts and twin set of friends up to # 3.

Bellissima via anche se ritengo sia quotata troppo alta. Per me il tiro duro è al massimo 7b+, comunque è una via da non perdere!!

Bella via, ideale per corsi CAI. Roccia un po' marcia nella fessura, giù in fondo.

Via spettacolare, più bella della Bon Ton alla Sbarua...

Premettendo che amo le salite (anche dure)di stampo più classico, pur avendo percorso da secondo l'intera via, devo ammettere molto bella ma non tanto dura come solitamente citata

Bella via (d'altronde se hai il grado...)
