Alpinism: Brévent – La Piste Oubliée (Aiguilles Rouges)

The La Piste Oubliée is a nice short route in Brevent (2,525m) with a nice 6b pitch. It is a good alternative to the crowded Frison-Roche (yellow), La Fin de Babylone (red) or Poème à Lou.

The approach is the same as Frison-Roche and the route starts just right of it. 5 pitches: 6a+, 5c, 6a, 6b, 5c.
