Traverse with a tricky top out. You have to mantle up the foot to get to a bad sidepull. But once you can manage to get your weight over the block, you know you are there!

Little arete with a funky jump. This boulder had a few lines on it. This version excludes the left side of the prow.

Ce bloc n'est pas un incontournable de la foret, il est (de mon point de vue) difficile pour la cotation et un peu morpho. Plus facile pour les grands, pour sûr. En plus il est un peu loin de tout...

Very un-Bleau like boulder. Small crimps and compact heels make this problem suitable for shorter climbers. The secret is to pinky-wrap the peanut hold. The cave stays cool, so it's also doable in war
