 Perhaps the best-known ­– and the most photographed – route in the valley: it is the wide diagonal crack splitting the bulge in the upper headwall. The name derives from a scatological event on the first ascent. (Parc backwards . . .) In that original version it was a rather wandering route, starting by traversing across from the Lic-Pa belay stance. Much better is to start up White Sabbath.
