14m. A chimney groove leads to a ledge where a second chimney leads to a ledge on the right. Finish up the wall.

The topo in the new Western Grit for this and Upset is wrong. The line shown for the top half of Echantillon is in fact the top half of Boo (not in Rockfax), and the line for the top half of Upset is Echantillon. Upset takes the corner to the right.
Also, there has been a very recent rockfall in this area, the debris is obvious. The finishing groove of this route now contains several large perched blocks, and is either dangerous or impossible, we didn't go close enough to find out which! There is enough fresh rubble around here at the moment that Echantillon is worth avoiding, and Boo and Upset approaching with caution.
