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.

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!
