A Bigger Bang*** 7a
[A Bigger Bang, Les Perrons. Bolting pitch 2, 2 kb]370m, 10 pitches. Superb modern direct route up the middle of the Pain de Sucre. For pitch 10 take the far more logical line of Brown Sugar on the right. Take 13 quickdraws and 2x50. 6c oblig. Starts at the extreme left of the apron of slabs. FIXE hangers (the PETZL ones to the right are Brown Sugar). Descent: abseil back down the route - look out for the off-route abseil anchor on the ramp.
