Pince sans rire*** 7b+
28m. The fall at the 6th bolt is not very amusing as at least 3 will testify(counted all on the same day) A great shame as one more bolt would make it far less intimidating for those who are not used to onsighting this grade. It is very onsightable if you are reasonably fit. The name translates as 'grip/pinch without laughing' and idiom meaning to have a deadpan sense of humour.
