Le Far is the diagonal line of rock running up the hillside about a kilometre south of Sector Principal. This is the least popular part of the cliff - despite the fact that there are some fine climbs here. The steeply sloping base makes it an awkward place to get settled, though a few flatter areas have been constructed. Guidebook page 184.
