This route is a direct start variation to Face Ouest.
Instead of starting on the intermediate ledge on the left of the needle it starts from the base of the needle (south?).
Delicate moves passed 2 bolts on small holds to reach the regular Face Ouest under the roof.


starts on the left side of the bottom of the needle (facing the trail/road)


2 bolts + double finger sized rack + single 1-2"
bolted top belay/rap.
