This west-facing wall gives a bit of shade for those who make early morning starts. Un Torcheur is in fact one who's position in life is to clean the derrière of another, not inflict pain, so pity not the elephant. Guidebook page 157.

Le Mythomane
Powerful moves lead to a long, juggy mid section with good rests. The finish is glorious but potentially frustrating!

Du Miel Entre Tes Seins
A great route, a 'top end of the grade' start leads to a sneaky no-hands rest, but by then it's steady to the top.

The big burly prow to the top of the crag. It's an extension - so no resting at the belay!

Hassan Bush, Georges Hussein; clonage...
An easy first half isn't much of a warm up for the pumpy headwall.
