Today's french menu : Les gorges du Verdon !

Blue Ice ambassadors Helias Millerioux and Pierre Hourticq went to Les Gorges du Verdon to explore every inch. They shared the trip highlights in the form of a restaurant menu.

Caution, it may make you hungry. 

Apetizer: shorter, bolted routes

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.

Double fond (7a/5.11d - 4 pitches)



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  

Virimilité (6c+/5.11c/A1) 



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

Hellfest (7a/5.11d)



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. 



Le verdon: a good quality rock!
