Face à la mer

Description 

Fun route on nice rock. A bit steep and intimidating in spots, but, large holds abide the inspired climber.

A good option if you're waiting to get on La Saphir or just want another tick on the Petite Aiguille.

Like all routes on the Petite Aiguille, watch your rope length if lowering off.

Location 

Located on the right side of the south face of La Petite Aiguille.

Could probably be started from the very base of the spire, or, from behind the tree up to the right.

Protection 

Bolt protected.

Fixed anchor at top. Rappel/lower off.
