150m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4c, 2) 2, 3) 4a, 4) 5a, 5) 3+. A classic up the long ridge gives Alpine-style climbing by the seaside. Popular and polished, but it doesn't spoil the experience. It can make a great end to a long day if you walk back home along the plateau at the top. Start up the polished wall in the gap behind the Petite Aiguille. Continue along the ridge in 1 or 2 pitches to a belay on a block below the upper wall. Take the well-climbed line up this in 2 or 3 pitches. © Rockfax

As a way out off the beach. Alpine style, with bags and coils in approach shoes. 45mins In 4 pitches. Extremely polished! Probably used to be a 3 or a 4 but now it’s so shiny it’s much harder. Well bolted, lower and upper wall are the crux.

A great adventure with a sunny start turning to dusk, then dark with rain, wind and lightning before a hike out in the dark.

Climbed this again after a late start and failure to find any fixed gear on or the line of Le Pouce Normal. Topped out with a gorgeous sunset.

Great climb and well protected except the ridge which has nothing but natural protection but very simple.
