for focus, you take the asphalted road. when it turns left, go right in the forest, in a kind of valley. follow it, climb the hill straight ahead the easiest way (no path). when you are at the crest follow it to your right. you may find a first green wall and focus is behind this one. i would say 50 to 100m behind this.
focus is easy to recognize. there is a little cave under the boulder. the start is always wet i think. i tried it in july during a really dry period and it was wet but still climbable. with my friend we find it really weird, uncomfortable and hard. maybe we were donkeys this day!

i would advice you to try to find feist dez, 7a 5 stars problem sit start thuggy on slopers then pinch, slopers and slap to the left. moreover itis fairly high. on the same boulder to the let there is another crimpy 7a sitstart. we hadn't try it. looks nice however.

see you soon

I went to the turn, but went left up there found some stuff, shame. looked around for ages but did not find it, I will try next rainy day to find it. Everything was wet today so went to rubis

quite hard to find indeed. we were two to find it so it was far easy than for you alone.
i will climb surely on wednesday afternoon. if it's really dry, i will try to complete la mouche, otherwise rubis sur l'ongle or rempart (watch tower, noir désir).
i ll text you friday morning if it is dry and where you are going to climb.

see you
