Ecaille Epique - Les Droites

I just said "I'm keen for whatever" not really knowing this would end up in 4 day outing on Les Droites. Ecallie Epique to our Knowledge had never been repeated and before we left Will proceeded to tell me about each of the first ascentionist and how each of them were French wads. It took them 4 days and they didnt call it ecaille epique for nothing! 

In the end its wasn't to bad but there was lots of hard climbing, Will cruised the pitch that gave the route its name and displayed some good guide skills and lead all of the upper part of the torrino spur on the last day.
