Nice photo. What a shame climbing is 'officially' banned for that sector. Isn't that Carol Nash? Can't recall the route at the moment...

Thanks glad you like it. Yes I think it is Carol Nash. I'd forgotten her name - an Aussie I think?

She's from NZ but now lives in France with Murray Hamilton. Good pic.

Is it Territoire De Fievre (7c+) or the 8a next to it (LŽElexier de violence? Man I'm scraping the memory barrel here)?
Both of which lull you into a false sense of security with easy long moves on good pockets on the steep bit and just when you think you're gonna get the easiest tick ever at that grade you find the desperate slab crux (so very Buoux).
I'm thinking something on that wall as Nuit Du Lezard is the bulging wall to the right I think? Another West Face horror.

I think it was Territoire. Definitely not L'Elixir or Le Nuit.
