Really beautiful line on the right arete of the boulder which can be found on the top of the hill on the west side of the sector. Took me some tries to figure out the exact beta and sequence. The move

A cute little overhanging prow next to the slap Licifer. A sitstart with the pocket and a good hold followed by some nice compression moves and a mantle on top.

Amazing edge with amazing jugs at the top. Small, but good footholds.

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.

If you ever get tired of dicey moves way up in the sky over dicey landings, where a tiny foot slip will land you in the hospital, come check this line out. It's a nice low lip traverse on slopers,

Le Casse-Dalle (assis) 7a

A sit start to a red problem that's pretty fun on its own. Sadly for shorties, it helps to have a bit of extra reach for the first move. Good technique and flexibility can make up for it, but be pre

Strength and body tension are key to this little roof.

A low, powerful, roof that's not too reachy and has actual holds. What's not to love?

Friction-dependent, beta-dependent, technique-dependent. If any of those things are lacking, you'll find it harder than some of the 7b's in the area.

Popular problem just off the path at the start of the area, it may be easier for the short to do this method than the 7a variant with the right hand arete. Stand start with hands lower than seems obv

Not sure on this one, but having played around on it, would say for 7a you miss the big sloper on the left... bleau.info disagrees tho. And it was super! hot when I was trying it.

Start as for Makhno, with the two crimps get a high left hook, then left sloper - right sloper. Beautiful.

A big lock off at the end, key is to fully trust the left foot!

Be careful not to step on the ancient carvings on the big pedestal!

Beautiful traverse with mostly slopers, where the first few moves are definitely the hardest. Finish on the left of the nose with a very doable mantle into a victory jug

The lower part was easy for shorties, but then the mantle harder than expected

This is a fun problem (Red #30) with a sit start into a slightly overhanging bulge. It has some powerful moves that seem harder for shorties but high heel hooks and foot placements can help make up fo

A fun traverse along the lip of a roof, with some tiny crimps that work for small fingers and no reaches anywhere in sight.

Sitstart, crimp for left hand and hook with the right. Long move to a good crimp with right hand that can be avoided using the bad slopery part on the right. There are different variations to do the t

On the backside of the El Pussah boulder this is a fun non-Font-esque 3D boulder problem that poses more of a problem if you are less than 155 tall! Avoid the eliminated holds as described on Bleau.i

Easy moves to start with, up to the bigger move to the crimp. I found a small pocket/undercling on the left side of the jug that you normally use for the big move to the crimp (not the one you use lat

A boulder that looks reachy at first, but a little ingenuity makes this problem possible. Start with the left hand pinch, the right hand in the pocket, and a foot lock in the big hole. Short legs make

This boulder is perfect for shorties. You have to swift your weight on your left heel to manage to hold the slopers and traverse to the right. It has a good landing so with two pads you can easily do

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.

If you have short arms, this problems looks impossibly wide at first glance. But you can outsmart the powerful moves with some sneaky footwork making this problem an enjoyable entry-level 7a.

This is one of those lines that sucks you in. You'll get up to the slopers on your first go, and they don't even feel that bad at first. But the mantle is crazy hard no matter how you go at it (and

First move is easier if you're tall, but can be done by shorties using a couple of terrible crimps in opposition. Pulling the roof, it helps to be small, so it all works out in the end.
