This fun, pumpy line starts up Youth Warm-Up and breaks left where the wall steepens. There are no super hard moves, but several stacked cruxes add up to an accessible but challenging endurance route. This has good stone and great positions. It is a 30-meter pitch.

@ heppnerd, you're talking about a different climb, maybe The Long Haul, but definitely not this route.

This might be the most fun and sustained route in the entirety of the Puoux. You hit pretty much every type of climbing hold and movement over 100+ feet.

A lot of climbers have taken the route of skipping the lower crux by using a long runner and traversing back into Experience at the giant hole. This version probably knocks off a letter grade, because it skips the hardest move, but the rest is still great quality. Easy to do combinations and links between this route and "Youth" to the right.
