Headin' to the anchor on Surprise Partie


Good slab climbing with some thin reachy moves.

One A0 moves reduces this route to a reasonable 5+ grade.

Thin and techy in spots, the grassy crack bits break up the slab moves.


Located on the right side of the south face of La Faille.

Third route down and away from the short wall across the slot.


10 or so quickdraws lead to a nice, chained anchor with a lowering carabiner.
