About South Face:

The south face of Dent de Jaman, this section has a number of bolted rock routes going up it, most notably Ace of Spades (5.8 A0 or 5.10c) and I Wanna Rock (5.10b A0 or 5.11a)

Directions: There are two ways to access this route from Col de Jaman. The easiest way is to follow the path which goes below the mountain and circles around toward the Southern side. Once the southern face comes into view follow the red markings up a very steep scree slope towards the face. Once you reach the base, there will be signs directing you to the left (toward I Wanna Rock) or to the right (toward Ace of Spades). The other option is to follow the normal hiking trail around the back side of the mountain and descend along a fairly nonexistent trail to the south face.
