The large fallen block/slab on the right-hand side of the path has a decent set of routes, though they are a bit polished. The belay bolts can be accessed by an easy scramble up the low-angled back of the block if needed. Guidebook page 313.

Nice balance-climbing up the left-trending slabby scoop, after a tricky couple of moves to get started. Photo on page 321.

Start as for the last route, but climb straight up the slab. Crimpy and a bit slippery too.

Pelle à tarte
Layback the slabby arete on the wrong side. Three bolts protect the precarious and powerful moves.
