P9: 6a, 25m, nice steep face.

It’s possible to avoid P9 by taking the last pitch (P9: 4a, 30m) of the route “Le Blond for ever” to right.

Descent: on foot or abseil down (2x 50m ropes). Continue upwards in the grass for 100m to the path that leads to the Lac Blanc. Follow the path to the left to a junction. At the junction turn left again to go back down.
