On the South face of the boulder marked "G", on the right of the blue path.
NB : a low 7a/7a+ sitstart without the pedestal is possible (using an undercling, a small hold and a heel hook left).

Low sit start - Anonymous (25-11-2009 17:47)
This problem is also possible with a low sit start underneath the roof without the pedestal.

Method:
Left hand sidepull just above lip of roof (just to the left and above Jean-Pierre's head in the first picture), right hand undercling just below lip of roof (the same Jean-Pierre has with his left hand), heel hook left (one metre left of Jean-Pierre's left ear) and right toe for balance in the roof just below lip. The first (right hand to a bad sidepull above his head) and second move (left hand to a pocket in the crack) are off balance, technical and powerfull. 7a/7a+?
