Sunset Roof 7a
Bois Rond Auberge

Petit toit avec des coincements de pieds et une fin plus physique. Je n’ai pas réussi la méthode avec la pointe gauche qui a l’air de rendre la fin moins physique. Bloc parfait quand on est seule.

Brûlures 6b
Drei Zinnen

Sit start with left hand on side pull low down on the left side of arrete. Follow arrete all the way around the right corner. Top out to the right on arrete on good holds.

Le Nez (rallongé) 7a
Canche aux Merciers

Sit start on the left under the Fesse (butt), traverse under the Nez (nose), and exit on the right with a mantle.

Its mostly compression boulder with a sloppy holds and with a cool technical finish.

Astérix (droite) 7a
Apremont Désert

A fun boulder situated on the edge of the sector. It contains a couple of variations on it, this is the right exit version. Some flexibility is required to throw your heel on top of the boulder.

In der Bütt 6c
Apremont Butte aux Dames

A funny little belly-prow with some pretty cool moves. Sit start matched on the slanting jug to the left, and work your way over the bulge.

La Mue Reine 6c+
Cuvier Ouest

Little one move boulder. Just get up! There are some small crimps to look for on top to help you wiggle your way up.

La Rampe 6a
Apremont Butte aux Dames

Sit at the right hand side of the obvious ledge and climb it to the left. At the jugs you need to make a big move up right to the lip. It's not as far as it looks! Great practice for a dynamic move

This is Sparta! 6b+

Seriously? 6b+? Well maybe when you know the beta? The description on Bleau.info says harder for the tall, which sounds fun in a perverse way, until you try it, and realise it's also pretty tricky if

La Diagonale 6a+
Rocher d'Avon

This is a super line, and the name does not do it justice. The block looks like a breaching shark and you climb up its teeth!! It is a sitstart, but the first moves are not the crux. The main diffi

Rasta 7a
Rocher d'Avon

This block has several lines on it, so lots of variations to chose! The first dynamic move took me many tries to stick, because it’s almost at the limit of my reach. For taller climbers this move is a

La Traversée des Ciseaux 6a
Rocher d'Avon

A fun traverse on sandy jugs that ends in a tricky mantle.

Rasta (debout) 6a
Rocher d'Avon

Fun mantle that takes a little tweaking. It's 6a once you have the right beta, but the exact foot and finger positions make a difference.

Le Pied à Coulisse 7a
Apremont Bizons

Tricky little slab that saves some difficulty for the very last move! Believe in those feet!!

Fantastic little problem involving a balancy undercut move on a slab! Enjoy !!

The Long Goodbye 5-
Rocher d'Avon

Simply stunning line that lures you in with a nice easy arete, but YIKES!! The last move takes some steel nerves if you are short!

Tricky little mantle!

This is a super fun 6c+ although the description of the start is difficult to distinguish from the 7b version. Sit start on the left hand end of a crack line under the roof. Traverse to the right an

La Travassis 6c
Gorge aux Châts

A challenging sit or squat start with some tricky moves up an overhanging arete, then powerful dynamic moves to a fun top out. It is a bit reachy but smaller climbers may find higher feet and intermed

Chaman 7c
Rocher des Demoiselles

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

Updated November 4:
Illuminati (gauche) 7b+
Le Calvaire

While the original line finishes straight up, this version ends to the left and avoids the most morpho (and the hardest) move of the original climb. Still a must do!

Dragon 6a
Roche aux Oiseaux

I have no idea if that’s what you’re supposed to do but I sure was fun ! I mantle with my left foot on the big step, then turn and grab the holds on the left to exit as said in bleau info !

Powerful & sustained moves on positive incut edges. High ball (but the crux is low). Delicious to climb.

Low compressy slopey problem. Decent landing. Fun and often overlooked but worth checking out. The business is in the bottom/middle.

Approche du Loin (assis) 7a
Apremont Butte aux Peintres

An interesting puzzle that nobody seems to climb the same way. Choose your weapons from kneebars to heelhooks, undercuts and laybacks. Sitstart matched on a tufa-like rail, make a big move up and ri

Great slab with an interesting pushing move in the lower part and a rather dynamic move to the edge (for shorties).

Dévers et des Pas Durs 7a
Apremont Désert

This overhanging block has a couple of nice lines, but this is my favorite! This beauty starts with toehooks, followed by a lock off move from a heel hook. This boulder is worth a try if you are in th

Looks pretty straightforward, sitting there right on the trail. Easy to pad out, no bad fall potential. Those slopers do look a bit slippery but really, how hard can it be? Narrator: *It was n

Le Coma des Mortels 7a
Jean des Vignes

Un super mouvement dynamique au début. Et une jolie traversée pas très difficile ensuite. Or, if you don't like to be too dynamic, use foot jams and toe hangs all round ... Just one super fun bould

Ventre et Vague 6b+
Rocher des Demoiselles

Squat start under a low roof, moving up on crimps, a finger jam, and slopers to a fun top out. Small fingers and flexibility are a plus.

Le Flanc de Katioushka 7a
Bois du Rocher

Tall people make a big move from the left big hold on the arête to the jug on the right arête. For short it’s easier to make one move up with your left hand first before going to the jug.

Une Pensée pour les Petits 7a

Petits are in the title, but I think it was maybe because the FA felt sorry for anyone with short arms on this problem. The regular variant doesn't really work if you are less than 1m60, but a really

Chemin des Boas 7a

Rising ramp traverse that has an explosive move at the top if you're short, but the mantle benefits from flexible hips.

Napoléon (droite) 7a
Rocher de la Reine

Sit start to the left of the tree and make a big move up and right to the arete. Traverse the arete to the left and exit on the point. Watch out for those slopers at the top if it's sunny!

Awesome splitter crack that takes both hands and feet. Sit start way back in the hole, and get stuck in! This line is so much harder for the small, because the crack is a little oversized, and we ne

An awesome jamming crack line, hidden in plain sight under the block behind La Memel. This on is slightly easier if you are small, because the exit is a bit tight.
