Le Linceul, Grands Jorasses

The Shroud, Grandes Jorasses

Le Linceul (aka The Shroud), Les Grandes Jorasses, north face.

Lots of questions recently about the Linceul and as it turns out, the good crew over at TVMountain.com have recently uploaded another one of their outstanding vids, which covers the route. As an added bonus, it also stars one of my climbing buddies, Jean Mi.
