Out of sheer coincidence our summer holiday was in the appartements right in front of the crag so I brought gear as we climbing on the off chance it would be cool enough to climb. Turns out it is until about 10:30am!! For a trad climber it was a nice change to do a bit of bolt clipping and this route was really enjoyable, not really that pumppy as the guide suggested.

Failed to find the good hold and rested just below the start of the steep section. Gets 5+ in the local guidebook of random grades.

Also not TOP 50, more sustained and better climbing than the previous one. Although, might have just felt like that in the rain!!
