La Vie Devant Soi*** 6b+
[Top out for La Vie Devant Soi looking down into Ailefroide campsite., 4 kb]350m, 14 pitches. Excellent route, very well bolted. Technical and sustained slab climbing over 14 pitches. Only a couple of pitches below F6a so make sure you can climb slabs well! Descend the route by abseil stations slightly to the right of the route but do not enter the ravine after the first pitch.
