Start up the initial moves of 'La Grande Bouffe' however clip a separate line of bolts heading out leftwards. Up on good edges and into a crack that opens to a fist jamb. Continue out left to a ring belay around the arete. Cleaning revealed a rusty carrot bolt hidden under the creeper. Superb rock complimenting great moves.

Start as for 'Bulimics' Picnic' but move immediately right and into the shallow corner. At the top of the corner head out right onto the arete and steeply up into a V groove to the top and a ring belay on the point. Excellent rock and absorbing climbing.
