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.

2nd go. Didn't use the big jug out right on my onsight. Felt like falling asleep starting my 2nd go but just scraped it - I think I might have OS'd if I used the jug (the route would climb better without it).
