South facing. Less steep than the other sectures with hard routes. The routes here tend to be more runout and stiffer than at other areas along the Ceuse cliff band. Great rock and technical climbing on smaller holds. Just right of center there are a handfull or 5.10/5.11 routes. The left half of the wall is stacked with hard 5.12 and 5.13 routes while the are some easier 5.12's in the middle and some mid-range 5.12 on the far right.

Getting There 

This is the Secture imediatly to the left of Biographie. Perhapse 15 minutes up the hill from the waterfall where the trail levels off.

Petit Tom 5.13a/b 8a 29 IX+ 29 E7 6c  Europe : France : ... : Secteur Berlin
A thin section for several bolts to begin, made harder because of awful feet. Crimp and pocket grab your way up to a few decent holds with much of a rest and fire through a big, blind move at mid height before finishing on easier terrain to the anchor.Called 7c+ or 8a depending on who you ask or which guide you reference....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

No doubt one of the best walls of sport climbing on the planet. The left side of the Berlin is, in my opinion, the absolute best chunk of stone I've ever climbed on. The majority of these routes would be the crowning pitch at nearly any other crag.
