tu démarres avec une réglette verticale main gauche et une adhérence/gratton main droite. du poses pied gauche sur une bossette dans l'axe du corps et ensuite tu fais un pied/main droite (le pied à l'intérieur).
Tu lèves alors main droite haut sur une adhérence, tu t'équilibres en laissant filer la jambe gauche et tu ramènes main gauche sur une bonne prise au dessus.
Bonne chance.

location of croix de fer - dot (18-04-2009 23:37)
hello, sorry for not posting in french, but my english is a bit better: Is this boulder directly left of the crack used for down climbing? Does it use all the slopers left of the crack and all footholds? The crack is certainly forbidden?! Or is this boulder in between this slopers and the surplomb ventru?
Thanks in advance, dot

can perhaps any of the editors clarify the questions about the exact location and the start of "Croix de Fer"?
