The backside of the large upper boulder

4. The Secret V2 SDS

8. L'Ange Mechant V6 SDS
Starts on sloping crimps on caves lip and tops out slab.


The following problems are on the lower boulder



9. Think Big V3
Classic dyno. Starts on huge hold and fires straight to top. Unfortunately contrived, since it is easier just to climb to the top.

10. Le Safari V7/8  
Start on micro crimps, stand, grab lip to very bad top-out straight up slab. Also contrived since many other possibilities exist. Variation on top-out shown in video.

11. Le Diamant V8 SDS
Around corner to the left of Le Safari. Start with high underclings and climb onto slab. Rock to the right can get in the way. (FA G. Losier 2005)

Climb straight up from crack.

16. Jungle Traverse V1
Start as for "Think Big", traverse right and link into "Tarzan Climb Jane"

Sit start straight up corner on good holds.


12. Jungle Fever V9
Start with underclings in steep cave right, fire to small hold on lip, then hard mantle topout on sloping bulge (FA Tim Doyle 2006)
