A jewel in the crown of Ariège climbing for those wanting grade 7 stamina routes. Many of the routes are a full 40m long, and do not have intermediate lower-offs so a long rope is essential. The buttress gets morning sun, afternoon shade and is very sheltered. Guidebook page 134.

It doesn't get better than this. Big moves through the middle bulge are followed by some decent rests. Not too technical.

Les 3 R
Great rock, but unfortunately the crux is a reachy slab move so the route is less satisfying than the others here.

Coeur de roc
A bouldery start gains a good rest, then pumpy climbing follows. Much better and more solid than it looks.

Pas pratique les lolos pèsent
Technical and pumpy. Start in the left of two recesses. The lower wall is nice and easy, the upper wall is nice and hard.
