Takes the right hand ridgeline to a gendarme at 2/3rd height where it joints the headwall. An abseil is needed to pass the gendarme. The climb was abandoned somewhere on the headwall due to a difficulty that couldn’t be passed. The climb remains uncompleted. A crux of 16 was encountered before the headwall.
