Description 

From Planpraz take the Lac Cornu path for 15 mins then ascend the first combe on the left (cairn a little higher up in the combe). The route up to the right of "Cocher-Cochon".

L# | 4b | | Crack (no bolts, not recommended, start with pitch 2)
L# | 5b | | Good rock with a surprising start.
L# | 5a(4c) | | Climb two rock steps
L# | 5b | | Nice, sustained pitch
L#' | | | Walk 50m (roped together). Climb down into a bowl in the boulders. (Nice picnic spot!)
L#_ | 5a | | Good rock with flakes.
L# | 5c | | Crux, athletic but well bolted.
L# | 3 | | Easily follow the crest of the ridge, 25m abseil to a corner that is shaded in the afternoon.
L# | 5a | | Steep but not difficult, 22m abseil, identical to that on "cocher-cochon”. Patience needed on busy days.
