270m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 6b+, 2) 6a, 3) 5c, 4) 6b+, 5) 6a, 6) 5c, 7) 5c. At about 270m and split into seven pretty huge pitches. A rack will be needed by most teams to supplement the fixed gear. The lower section starts up a pillar that separates the huge orange cave-systems about 200m left of the base of the crack-system of La demande. This is climbed in three pitches, the third one looping out left to avoid a tricky (6b) blank groove. The unmistakable upper groove is directly above the arrival point, and the steep first pitch (the crux) is quite intimidating. Above this, things gradually ease. Many teams start from the Jardin to avoid the walk in approach. © Rockfax
