Description 

Morning sun and afternoon shade. This secture is relatively secluded as the routes are mostly 3 and 4 pitches long about 300' to 500' tall. Amazing multi pitch sport climbing.

Getting There 

From the waterfall head right past Biographie and Demi Lune till the trail crests a hill and heads back down, keep your eyes open for the via-ferrata descent (rebar ladder rungs drilled and glued into the rock). You will pass a secture that has only a few routes then drop down to the base of the Grande Face. Approach from the water fall takes about 30 minutes.
