The only fixed protection (that you'd want to use apart from lots of absiel tat) is on the Nomina crack pitch, a thin crack that splits a blank slightly overhanging wall (full pitch of 45+ Metres?. The crack has a lot of old, new and eastern european pegs in it. To climb it's worth taking along a couple of blades, LAs and Baby Angles, 1 sets of wires and a full set of cams. Take some light aiders and PLENTY of crabs for the fixed pro! Jumars make cleaning quicker and easier.a long slightly overhanging.

The bottom half is easy, and the top is a walk in the park. The middle three mixed pitches can be tricky/loose but you can always get good belays...wich is good if your seconding!

Rap of the back of the Grand Dru, not the Petit Dru.

Good Luck.
