Description 

The free standing chunk of rock away from the cliff.

Once someone leads one of the easier routes (like Face Ouest), it's possible to set up top ropes along the north face (Super Dupont to Belzebuth) and along the west face (Bidouble to Face Ouest Direct).
Ochra and Face Ouest will need directionals with potential for some scary swings.

There's also the possibility of setting up a tyrolean accross the main cliff and the needle, of course, take all associated precautions and that hook should not be considered life bearing.

Getting There 

in the center of the cliff, can't miss it
