Description 

Psychological: is the second roof. Good gear and straight aid helps to deal with the exposure. Pitch 8 is the technical crux. c3-. Pitch four is called :Le jet de sable. and has rotten rock in the first 20 meters.

Location 

Cap trinité
This is a walk down route because of the two big roofs.
The route start's below the obvious huge roofs in the midle of the cliff.

Protection 

All belay are on good bolts.
All the rest goes clean but some still bring a hamer in case a fix rurp would be missing. small cams, c3's are usefull(000) and a number 5 is also great but not mandatory.

FA team: Gaétan Martineau and Jacques Lamontagne, somewhere around 1980. Glorious aid route, tons of air, amazing bivouac. Highly recommended.
