Le Pied à Coulisse : 8C+ First Ascent
On my third go (the maximum number of try I can manage in a session), I wasn't feeling really good in the roof, but I fought like a bull, and pulled out the mantle!! After a good rest at the begining of the slab, I put myself together to finish the last part, and there I go! The the slab has some moves with no hand holds way up high, so you can't slip on the small feet without breaking something...
