Up and Down
Sheltered

An impressive collection of steep, superb and hard face climbs in a retiring setting. The first routes here start in a deep pit to the left of the huge red corner. Scramble awkwardly down into this or, more easily, pass through the rift to the left of La Dalle Claude. There are four routes starting in the pit.

Pourrave party
Head up the wall just right of the corner if you can get started. A long sling on a bolt protects the cruddy section low down.
