Description 

Grade reflects first pitch. Pitch 1: 4b. Pitch 2: 6b.

Start in the same bushy nook as Le Boulon de Droite. Climb up broken face to below the ledge/flake, staying left and below of the flake. Climb up left of the right-facing edge of the flake then up the face above. Notice the three long, white-ish old bolt corrosion streaks above the flake/ledge. Up to the ledge to the anchor.

Continue up a steep, much harder face above for the second pitch.

Fun climbing on good, sticky rock.


Location 

Just left of Le Boulon de Droite.


Protection 

Fixed anchor on bolted sport route.
