La Balade des Gens Heureux*** 6a+
[The crux of the 6a+ pitch on La Balade des Gens Heureux, 3 kb]280m, 8 pitches. A great route taking a fairly direct line up the left side of the slabs. Not over protected - best not to be at your limit, this is not 6a+ sport climbing... Make sure to extend draws on the crux pitch - it's longer and wanders more than you think. Take 12 quickdraws and slings and 2x50. 6a oblig. Descent: abseil back down the route.

Not worthy of the three stars imho. Enjoyable day out, but the crux pitch was the only really memorable one for me

Its a tough 6a+ crux pitch compared to the rest of the pitches but the quality sure shines through

Had to A0 the 6a+ pitch. Not really at my best today. The crux is well bolted though as description says fairly spaced else where. Really nice varied route with great views.

Finished by doing the Traversée des Perrons to the Pain de Sucre and rapping down A Bigger Bang.
