So named because you have to be able to use your feet to succeed here - well maybe. This is only a short tier with a handful of routes, but the rock is excellent as is the outward view. Despite their diminutive stature, the routes are action packed.

Shake land
From a niche, move out left and climb the nice varied slab. The grade in the local guide of 4 is a bit mean.

Un drôle de bruit
The broad balancy rib leads to laybacking a short open groove.

Un inquiétant silence
The right-hand finish to the last route is sketchy.

Pull past the right edge of the overlap. Short 'n' sweet.

The slab gives a fine bit of climbing and is quite tough.

The wall just left of the angle gives a nice crimpy pitch.

Lla so que cal
Climbing the main corner groove is poor and awkward, whereas the slab just to the right is better but hard - you choose.

Le débutant
Start near the base of the slab and climb onto the upper section. Pad up this with interest.

Réflexion
This one starts round the toe of the buttress. The first bolt is almost hidden in a tiny groove. Once established, meander up...
