Description 

Many quality easier routes throught the main part of the face. A couple of harder extentions off the top of these routes. The left end of the secture has several 5.13's then a handfull of 5.12's and finally 5.11's and 5.10's as you move to the center of the face. The right end of this secture has a steeply overhung wall that hosts several 5.13's. The concentration of easier routes as well as the proximity to harder routes makes this a popular area and can be crowded.

Getting There 

The secture imidiately to the right of Biographie. Also the top of the cliff looks like something took a HUGE bite out of it leaving a half moon cut out right above the center of the secture.

A newer line and also one of my favorite climbs at the Demi-Lune. I don't think i'll ever get tired of doing this one. Classic Ceuse face climbing on pockets and edges up a slightly overhanging orange wall. Start on good pockets which slowly get smaller until you make thin moves out left which lead to a sequential crux over a slight bulge at 40ft. More thin moves on shallow pockets lead through a couple big pockets good enough to shake out on. One more final crux through the final bulge (tricky...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Sector Demi Lune.  This is the first crag to receive afternoon shade.  In the warmer months the crowds converge on l'Cascade in the morning, and then chill under the big roof on the right until the shade arrives here.  Its always a race to get on the classic warmups on the right end of this wall.
