Abstract: The Cabibbo-suppressed decay Λ b 0  → ψ(2S)pπ− is observed for the first time using a data sample collected by the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions corresponding to 1.0, 2.0 and 1.9 fb−1 of integrated luminosity at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV, respectively. The ψ(2S) mesons are reconstructed in the μ+μ− final state. The branching fraction with respect to that of the Λ b 0  → ψ(2S)pK− decay mode is measured to beB(Λ0b→ψ(2S)pπ−)B(Λ0b→ψ(2S)pK−)=(11.4±1.3±0.2)%,B(Λb0→ψ(2S)pπ−)B(Λb0→ψ(2S)pK−)=(11.4±1.3±0.2)%,where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. The ψ(2S)p and ψ(2S)π−mass spectra are investigated and no evidence for exotic resonances is found.
