A concentration of brilliant routes await at this easily missed sector. The Partie Gratuite wall has a number of recommended routes, often combining steep and powerful starts with technically absorbing 'grey' finishes. Les Diamants has some incredible soaring pitches that would be completely polished were they closer to the beaten track, so well worth the effort! Approach either by walking along the ledge from the left, or do one of the routes below and continue upwards. Guidebook page 266.

1) 6b. A 2 star pitch on its own. Walk left on the ledge. 2) 7a+. This pitch is almost as good as Les Diamants.

Start on the left wall back in the cave, and follow the bolts left to a junction with Joe Weider, then take the left-hand...
