The right undercling is broken and pretty soft. It's easy to use another handhold instead. Rest of the rock seems pretty alright and safe.

I'd believe it. I just remember seeing a video of someone doing it that way and thought how fun it looked!

Petya Metya, 6 days ago on Vodka Martini

According to Bleau.info, starting with he bat hang is the 6a version, but it looks way more fun ??

Action Directe (assis) 7a

A low traverse, followed by a tricky move to get established and reach up to some nice Font slopers. A really good "First 7a", and very doable for shorties.

Crimpy sit start on sharp crimps, core tension for the move out upwards, the top out is a reward :)

Shorter people will need to use the crimp on the left. Taller people will probably prefer avoiding that crimp and bumping from the crack directly to the top.

Longévité 7a
Apremont Désert

Really cool short 7a with a nice low sit start, two pretty good pinches, followed by three tricky slopers and a kind of a long move out to the right. Shorter climbers would need a bit more foot sortin

Updated October 17:
Longévité (sans convention) 6c
Apremont Désert

If you are comfortable with a heelhook on the right (big hold), you will be able to reach the crimp rather statically. Otherwise just go for it :) Once you've done the 6c definitely try the 7a version

A striking boulder off on its own that you can't help but notice every time you walk in to 95.2. There are a few gems in this area, so it's worth the stop.

Helen Dudley, July 31 on Contributing to BettyBeta

Did you work it out Josie? Sorry I didn’t reply straight away. If you go to the ‘contributing’ section, in the first bullet point, there’s a line in blue text... ‘import individual lines from Bleau.

Josie, July 30 on Contributing to BettyBeta

Hey Helen, how do I import a line that is not on the website yet?

Michelle Kuiper, July 19 on Dyno's for girls, any recommendations?

Hi Girls,
I would like to improve my dyno skills and I was wondering if anyone knows suitable dyno's for people who are shorter (I am 168). I did Keo (7a - Canche aux Merciers) and La Quille (en jete

Michelle Kuiper, July 7 on La Quille (en jeté direct)

Might be easier for shorter people because the foot holds are pretty close to the hands. Jumping backwards with both hands feels a bit scary at first but after a couple of tries and some commitment it

Michelle Kuiper, July 7 on Kéo

The jump is far but not impossible if you are shorter. The difficulty is the pore footholds and crimpy side pulls from where you have to jump.

Chloé Nicolay, June 30 on Le Trou qui Tue

Amazing, thank you Dani!! I'll try it again next time I go to Rocher St Germain! :)

Dani P., June 29 on Le Trou qui Tue

Hi Chloé, I've added a photo of the start, it should be uploaded soon. I remember I've needed the big crashpad to reach the starting holds, and the rest of the boulder was more like a battle, but with

Chloé Nicolay, June 29 on Le Trou qui Tue

Does anyone have a beta for someone who's 165cm tall or less? I can barely reach both starting holds at the same time, so lifting a foot is nearly impossible o_o;

Yujie HE, June 25 on Extraction Martienne

I'm usually very bad at dyno so I'm so happy to top this one!
My trick was to keep both feet on the lower rock, it's easier to push when i jump up forward

Yujie HE, June 23 on Panne d'Ascenseur

It’s overhanging with very nice jugs all to the end.
The arete in the end is far for me so I had to transfer my bodyweight to my right feet and reach the arete with left hand

Kathrin, June 11 on Lapin ou Canard

Alternative Beta for the roof section: If you‘re a little too short to keep your feet on the ledge to reach around to the slopers, a little jump works just fine ;)

Helen Dudley, June 4 on Délit de Droite

This didn't feel particularly hard for the grade, but I think its a mistake to try and use the lower footholds if you're short.

Caroline Coolen, May 30 on Scarlatine (assis)

De toute façon, le plus dur c'est vraiment de se lever, je pense que quelqu'un peut y aller 15 fois et pas se lever, c'est vraiment particulier ????? Perso je me lève de face, mon copain n'y arrivait

Helen Dudley, May 30 on Scarlatine (assis)

Bonjour Celine, Je sais que cette route est un peu déroutante, mais je pense que ca dépend de l'angle de lequel vous la regardez. Autant que je sache, la prise de départ est légèrement à droite et ten

Crimps galore! Great for the short.

Beth May, April 9, 2020 on L'Oblique

A fun problem. It feels like it going to be very dynamic for a smaller person, but I managed the ascent quicker than the taller people I was with.

Beth May, April 9, 2020 on Lapin ou Canard

I did some different beta than most; a palm down on the left hand, to snatch the top with my right.

Michelle Kuiper, March 12, 2020 on La Ritournelle

Thanks for the video and the beta! I'll go back and try it soon ??

Josie, March 11, 2020 on La Ritournelle

I can not send it yet but use a double toehook on the right and bumb to the sloperledge first before going to the arete

Helen Dudley, March 11, 2020 on La Ritournelle

Berengere let me have this video... does that help?

Michelle Kuiper, March 11, 2020 on La Ritournelle

Hi! I've tried this line last year but couldn't span the big move to the left (I am 1.68m). Does anyone have an alternative beta? Or do you just need to be tall to do this boulder? ??

Petra Dvorak, March 8, 2020 on Égoïste

By the way, you created a unique website here Helen, i love it!

Petra Dvorak, March 8, 2020 on Égoïste

I am not dynamic at all, after a few failed attempts with the long move i decided spontaneousely to try, and it worked out :-)

Helen Dudley, March 8, 2020 on Égoïste

I love your beta Petra! That right hand near the top looks like it might be the key! I’ve always struggled to set up for the final move on this problem! Thanks for sharing!

Petra Dvorak, March 8, 2020 on Respect d'intention

great problem, because it's not much easier for tall guys

Josie, February 27, 2020 on Humerus (par le haut)

On the video on bleau.info the climber uses an undercling on the right. For me it felt easier to use the right undercling starthold for a heelhook after the first move, and just use the arete for hand

Caroline Coolen, January 24, 2020 on Do Shoes Really make a difference?

Just saw the video of Le Denmat in La Super Prestat, I guess for him the answer is that it doesn't matter at all haha. (Link : https://vimeo.com/162671061)

Caroline Coolen, November 13, 2019 on Le Casse-Dalle (assis)

I wouldn't had put it into Morpho since I'm only 1,62 cm and I did it but it's obviously easier if you're taller (I do agree).
