Topic - Worth going to Verdon...?

RickGrundy - on 30 Jul 2012
Hi,

Heading out to the Haute Provence for a couple of weeks at the end of August on a sport climbing trip.

Whilst we're in the area(ish) we are wondering about having a few days in the Verdon Gorge to do some big routes. The only problem is that we will only have a single rope (70m), and won't be able to take much in the way of a trad rack.

Is it possible to climb some of the big routes on single ropes, and are there any well enough bolted to not need any trad gear at all? Or if we can use a single rope can I manage with a limited trad rack, and what's should I take if this is the case?

We would probably not want to go much harder than around 6b+ for all day affairs.

Cheers,
Rick
