Little Chamonix 

This justifiably popular route has been on my list for quiet a while but for some reason I never got to climb it. All of that changed on Monday when on my break from work we drove up and gave it a shot. Marek has led the route we had all for our self with just one party way infront of us. 

First pitch follows a crack and groove then you'll climb over the flake and onto a tree belay. Second pitch continues up the V shaped corner and what is probably one of the best moves on the rock where you need to sit down and slide  to get to a corner and onto a saddle belay. Top of second pitch has some of the best position in the Lakes in my opinion. Third pitch is slightly overhanging but easy to climb and route finishes on a large ledge with great views of the valley. 


here is the video, you can also view it in my "Video" section
