Description

Morning sun and afternoon shade. This secture is relatively secluded as the routes are mostly 3 and 4 pitches long about 300' to 500' tall. Amazing multi pitch sport climbing.

Getting There

From the waterfall head right past Biographie and Demi Lune till the trail crests a hill and heads back down, keep your eyes open for the via-ferrata descent (rebar ladder rungs drilled and glued into the rock). You will pass a secture that has only a few routes then drop down to the base of the Grande Face. Approach from the water fall takes about 30 minutes.

There is now a trail which leads directly to the base of the Grand Face. It is generally steep, but a much more direct and often quicker acess to this part of the cliff than the other trails. If you are staying at the camping or the gite, it's probably better to save a little gas and the hassle of displacing your car and use the normal acess trails (ie Biography) and traverse the cliffline. If you're headed up the hill coming from Sigoyer, take a righthand turn marked 'les bonnets' just before the camping. Follow this road up and left for about 1km and park just before the gate in a small dirt parking area. The trail starts just at the parking behind a trail sign. Marked along the way with red dots
