Rockfax Description
The thinner line of cracks on the right-hand side of the slab is the equal of its better known neighbour. Start 5m right of the start of Sacre Coeur at a thin crack.
Take the crack to a small overlap. Move up and follow thin technical cracks with difficulty to a better crack. Continue up this crack and finish up another to gain the summit of the rock. © Rockfax

βeta: Good quality, absorbing, sustained slab climbing that will burn your feet to stumps if you are unprepared for it. No path at the grade. Depending on the barnacle coverage, slipping off the first 20feet without motorcycle leathers could give your cosmetic surgeon plenty to go at. Harder by at least 1 grade than neighbouring Sacre Coeur (so high in the grade as they say - which usually means it's really the next grade up!). IMO crux is lowdown at overlap with sustained 5c climbing above, much of it protected with microwires (essential) and other marginal bits and pieces (micro cams useful) that give a spaced and only moderate sense of security.
