Mode d'emploi Alien ? - Sigourney (07-05-2004 17:36)
Où se trouve la sortie ? Est-ce complètement à gauche du bloc en traversant sur tous les plats, ou bien dans la sortie du 7a en départ assis juste à gauche de Greg sur la photo, ou bien encore directement au dessus de la main gauche de greg sur les plats immondes...

Pour le départ, je suppose que c'est un départ assis dans les gros bacs sous l'arête de droite ? Mais en tout cas cela paraît beaucoup plus que 7b+ !

Merci pour vos éclairages...
that's it - aurel (11-09-2008 16:38)

I went to try alien today, but it is not in the 7&8 and was unclear were it started, the fact the bolder has several routes on it its unclear on this site and in the book were they start and finish, so I ended up trying vandale instead.

I did not do vandale sit start today, but I did a stand start of alien. I think this should be documented as a route as its a very nice problem.

All my hard work in this heat today was for nothing :(
