Beautiful outing! Starts about 5m to the right (looking at cliff) from the bottom of the Dalles Grises abseil. It is possible to run the last 2 pitches together that makes a 59m pitch requiring 21 draws (bad rope drag by the top). The 2nd last pitch is very short - the topo in the Rockfax guide is slightly off.

This is THE major classic in Verdon! Take a small set of friends and nuts.

FA: J. Coqueugnot & F. Guillot, 1968

Accessed from the Riviere d'Argent Abseil. Walk right (facing cliff) along fixed ropes until you reach a tree with a short rope dangling off a hanger, this is where the route starts. 16 quickdraws including a couple of alpines is enough. Rope drag can get really bad. The final pitch traverses right for 3 bolts then up the large crack (don't go straight up, that is the 6b). Every pitch is 6a+ and is rather sustained.
