You've probably heard of this route. And for good reason. It's truly incredible.
To the left of the little cave, climb up some orange stone and around an arete onto a beautiful blue face and finish up and right to a 2 bolt anchor at a stance. Another option is to climb the pillar right of the cave via a newer route to a nice full on ledge. Both first pitch options are around 11+.
Launch from either belay onto the stunning blue headwall. Edge your way to the left side of the slash and follow it up and right through some harder terrain to a memorable runnel finish. Absolutely stellar climbing on world class stone.
To the left of the Grail on the obvious, tall, blue, right facing wall.

I have never been to France. With that said this is the best piece of stone I have ever had the privilege to climb on. The first pitch is worth the second pitch...DON'T MISS THIS CLIMB.......
