Probably the world's best-known hard-climbing sector, Bout du Monde has long been a forcing ground. Although no longer the only place to test the best, if you're dedicated enough, it's only a matter of time before you're going to pay these routes a visit.
For those not up to the grades the fine wall to the left has one of the iconic routes at Buoux - No Man's Landit is popular though, so expect to have to share it with others. On the plus side, there's a good chance that the clips will be in, so you can have a go and not worry about pumping out at the end of the traverse and having to get your clips back.
