Extraordinary crack that passes through a series of roofs.
Start at a belay that is hidden behind a big old cedar, 15 meters from the ground.
The easiest access is from the right, from the foot of Atomic Limbo.

From the old cedar, an excellent Camalot #3 (with a long draw) and a green Alien (or blue Metolius) will allow the bold climber to place him or herself at the edge of the roof, so that a small stopper can be placed in the thin crack on the face above. The technical crux of the route can then be climbed safely.

Du cèdre, un excellent Camalot 3 (avec une dégaine longue) et un excellent Alien vert (ou Metolius bleu) permettent au grimpeur audacieux de se placer au bord du toit, afin d’insérer un coinceur dans la petite fissure sur la face extérieur. Ensuite entreprendre le crux technique de cette voie.
