This one move wonder problem start on the same big jugs as for Double Trouble. Do a huge lunge to the lip and top out. It's a one move problem but still worth the try. Note: This might feel like a v2 for reachy people and v4 for smaller climbers. Enjoy !

You can start this warm up traverse to the left with good hold and keep going right until you reach the end of the traverse.

Set by Jean-Claude Savard, 2012

There's a good left hold and a nice right undercling under the roof. Front that position, grab a reachy hold then fire up for the top out.

If you like traverse, your going to be served. I highly recommend using some tape for both of your index fingers for this epic crux moves. Top out to the left end after about 30ish moves. the cracks in the roof for the crux seems to be way smaller. Not sure if it's still possible...

Weird problem but once you find the proper hold, it's a nice and easy one. By standing up, you should be able to grab a really good undercling. Climb up and direct yourself to your right for the end.

Set by Jean-Claude Savard, 2011

A nice and classic cross over Starting on the bottom left end of the rock, reach an excellent pocket to your right for the crux move. There's an extension done by Maxime Dutil, starting awkwardly in front of the rock, both hand of the Dinamic Dance start hold for the feet and reach the original problem. Note that this does not increase the difficulty nor the quality of this climb.
