L to R R to L Alpha
Le Petit is another great easy route on the Southeast Face that ascends an obvious, left-facing corner system to the top of the wall east of the summit.
Francais climbs a left-facing dihedral about 200 feet climber's right of Central Chimney. It's easy to locate, the start of the climb is right off the summit trail, about 25 feet behind a trail marker located where the trail runs parallel and near to the main face.
A standard rack works fine for this line. Like Central Chimney, no RPs or tiny gear needed, just cams and nuts. Pro is generally good on this route, with just a couple shallow, flaring crack sections to give trouble to a new leader. The climbing is secure throughout, though.
