A long standing project that saw a lot of attention before finally succumbing to Simon Lorenzi after 25 days of work.
It's an 'old' project which has been tried long before The Island was opened in 2008. The roof, called "Toit du Nid d'Aigle" by foresters, had been identified as a futuristic project by climbers in 1973 and its sitstart had been tried since the late 1990s. 
3 recorded ascents.

After ticking the stand start quickly the low start was a much more protracted affair, stretching out to 25 days of effort.
To make a crucial knee on the sit work better Simon borrowed a book from his girlfriend and placed it underneath his kneepad to make his shin a little longer. The name of the problem comes from the title of the book.
