La Puce? - Anonymous (22-11-2002 14:13)
I am curious about the pictures of Fred Rouhling on La Puce at Canche aux Merciers. Looks a lot like Jacadi doesn´t it? I thought it was the crack to the right. Anyone know this crack(sit start) and how hard it might be?

Great site!

Maybe the boulder on the picture is in fact Jacadi. I'll check it out and refer the picture to Jacadi if so. Thank you for making the remark.

Already a while ago. I'll add the 7a/b as a variant on la longue marche to our database.

jacadi left hand variation - chris davies (04-12-2002 17:39)
hi, last november - I know - a year ago, iclimbed jacadi but going up and left as opposed to right - this is a grade harder than the original. has it been done before? By the way - Ilooked into this le puce thing. The crack ie. seuce le puce (wrong spelling!) is about 7a/b. le puce - rhoulings version - is a dyno from the back hand rail all the way to the lip at 8a/+. No crack allowed for hands or feet - lomg way !!, cheers chris.

Starting in the horizontal crack and making 1 or two moves right to the start of the vertical crack and a finish direct seemed like 7b/7b+ and makes the start of the crack feel harder and gives nicer moves. It certainly felt harder than rage dedans but was hot and greasy. What does anyone think? It's a good problem I'm surprised it's not in the guides.

it is La puce. - Anonymous (25-11-2002 13:47)
the righthand crack is a boulder of the blue circuit. The sitstart is about 7a/b en can be done as part of the traverse "la longue marche (7c)"
Jaccadi is the jump 1 meter to the left of la puce, using other holds but also graded 8a (has anyone an idea if the left start hold of jaccadi has broken??)

is it 8a with the broken hold or would it be harder now?

Before the hold broke out it was 8a
I think it hasn`t been repeated since.
