/ Has anyone got a Cogne definitive guide handy?
I'm trying to identify a climb we did last weekend, it isn't in my selective guide.
I can offer a reasonable description if anyone has a definitive.
I do, I'm away for a bit from tomorrow morning but if you can let me know the description tonight then I can see if I can find it
Got a few, where was it?

A few hundred metres after Il Sentiero del Troll walking away from Valnontey. The route was a long gully with a rock step about half way up. It'd certainly been climbed before as there was ab tat on some of the trees.
It'll be a low grade, probably a 2 or 3.
Thanks for any help.

Took pics of the maps and route pics for the above from the guide book if you want them, ping me your email address if you'd like me to send them on.
