1ere Pointe des Nantillons : Guy-Anne, l’insolite

What a nice route! There are so many great routes to climb in L’Envers des Aiguilles so it is hard to choose. We finally decided to climb Guy-Anne, l’insolite in the 1ere Pointe des Nantillons (2,921m), good choice!

Guy-Anne, l’insolite has been opened by Michel Piola and Pierre-Alain Steiner (Aug 3, 1984) on a fantastic granit.
