L to R R to L Alpha
Although this little route might be easily overlooked given the lack luster description in Skip's book, it is worthy of a quick run and an excellent warm up. Start in the double crack system just up the hill from Le Petit Arbre and left of the nasty little mossy gully. The double crack system is obvious as it terminates at a point about 20' up.
This route is located uphill from Le Petit Arbre and just past the mossy gully. To get down, rap off the boulder at the south end from the chains to the top of P1 of Le Petit Arbre. A 70 m will not make it all the way down, so from here you will either have to walk off south or rap off of the bolts of P1 of Le Petit Arbre.
Although from the bottom, this appears to be wide, I found that you could easily get away with a set of singles to a #3 Camalot C4 supplemented with a set of nuts. For the belay atop the first pitch, you could actually just wedge your body in to the crack behind the rocks if you had no gear available.
