Description 

Like a little cirque, with a big corner on its left and a ramp on its right.
So far (as of August 2016), it has three 2-bolt anchors, one for Sport (left face), two for Trad (left corner and right ramp). The right ramp likely could be used to set up top anchors for Top-Roping routes on the left side of sector 3 Trident.

Overall faces WSW, but left side faces more S.

Just as we recognize the June Lake Loop as a little visit to Switzerland, so we feel the featured granite of Rush as a taste of the famous granite of Chamonix Mont Blanc in France . . .
"Génépi" is for the Aiguille du Génépi, a satellite peak of the Aiguille d'Argentiere, with several fun less-difficult multi-pitch rock routes near the Refuge d'Argentiere mountain hotel / "hut".
. ("génépi" is an aromatic mountain flower in France, used to make a well-known liqueur -- pronounced something like zhen-eh-pee).

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Getting There 

Follow the instructions on the Rush area description page to reach sector 7 Midi. Then turn Left and walk/scramble N about 600 feet (with some ups + steep downs) to reach this sector. (9-18 minutes)

Or at times of low water flow in Rush Creek, consider the "Alternate hiking/wading approach" described further down on the Rush area description page to reach sector 1 Papillons, then scramble steep up right.
