The big cliff right of The Grotte is ever-popular, with a good mix of fine single pitch routes on the left and a number of interesting low-grade two and three pitch routes winding their way to the top of the main wall. Descent is by lowering off where indicated, and where not, follow the top of the cliff to the right, then a fixed cable down until you reach a path to the base. Guidebook page 212.
