Getting past the short roof on Curset at La Crevet...

Description 

Fun route, with a bit of a thin start past the second bolt.

Low first bolt is close to the second and easy to remove once the climber is clipped in to the second placement.

Short roof leads to great, steep face climbing with the occasional small jog left and back right.

Great views and position. Great rock. Not super polished even given its "top 50" rating by the 2011 Rockfax guide.

If there are folks at the crag, more than likely, they'll tick this route, so, be prepared for traffic.

Location 

Located on top of the same block as Coordina Coordinator and to that route's right (no need to re-stack the rope).

Left of "Baba" which snakes its way between a couple of obvious green bushes.

Protection 

Bolt protected. Take 12 or so quickdraws. Long route. Rappel anchor on top.

Nicely bolted, especially for the low crux.
