This is one of the great 'old skool' trad routes in 10 Mile Canyon. Begin the route on the right side of the West Wall, at the end of the small ledge, and follow an easy, beautiful, right-facing corner up to a broken roof. Turn the left arete onto slab, and head up through a (weakness) beautiful, shallow roof with amazing, sculpted holds to the slabby face above and a 2-bolt anchor. Be careful of potential loose rock in the roof. This is an awesome moderate trad line with excellent climbing and gear. Oh, and the route name is a loose French translation: "it's the foot".


A mild, exposed hike up slabs will bring you to the West Wall and a small ledge where the right-facing corner begins. 2-60m raps gets you back down to the ledge. The chain anchor replaces any anchor that existed on the tree, please preserve the tree. The route is in the center of the left side of the dome.


A standard rack of cams to 3" and a few medium-large nuts. Double #0.5-#2 cams may help some budding leaders. A #4, #5 can also be placed on the route. A single 60m rope will do. 2-raps get you down. This can be broken into 2 shorter pitches.

There are chain anchors at the mid-way tree and a 2-bolt anchor on top.

What a great route. A must do route if you are in the area.

Bring yer gardening gloves - dirty and vegetated after the wet summer. Still enjoyable, for sure. Sunshine led us up a "new" variation of the top pitch, angling up and left from the mid-anchors over the juggy left side of the roof. We ended at the anchors for Andy's. I say "new" as several shrubberies were removed to make the moves available for the roof. C'est Le bush?
