The grandest secteur on Buoux with a wealth of brilliant routes a few of which continue all the way to the top. Le Pilier de Fourmis is perhaps the best multi-pitch route at Buoux and well worth getting on even if you have to use direct aid on the crux move on the final pitch. The lower slabby walls are popular. Guidebook page 274.

Les Barouilles (P1)
It continues higher up but is seldom climbed as a multi-pitch route.
