    Accessible from the top by rappel, the climb has four beautiful pitches. Which is convenient if you arrived late.  Like these two, who arrived at 4pm.

    A spicier starter: " It's really nice, on the two first pitches you climb on beautiful columns" says Pierre.



    Main course: artif and trad-climbing with an old-school style

    This adventure does not require much technical skills but a degree of mental toughness. After this one, you'll get the sleep you need.


    Dessert: a sustained, bolted multipitch route

    A sustained ten pitch route combining all climbing styles. In the Verdon Gorge, if you don't want to have surprises then don't be over confident. 



    BON APPETIT!
