7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4, 2) 5, 3) 5+, 4) 4+, 5) 4+, 6) 5, 7) 5. The left-hand line is a popular ramble taking a leftward line up the gentle slabs. Bolting is sparse on the easier pitches, there are some solid nut placements to fill in the gaps where needed. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Winds its way up the left hand, less steep flank of the main Pilier des Cathares cliff. Fully equipped with bolts and belays. L1 - 4a; L2 - 5a+; L3 - 5b+; L4 - 4c; L5 - 4c; L6 - 5a; L7 - 5b. The rock is solid on the harder pitches but there is some loose rock on the easy, shallow angled sections; a helmet is strongly recommended. It is safest to walk off the top (walk along crest to ruined chateau then down scree slopes to the far end of the crag). If retreating or abseiling off (not recommended) you will require double 40m ropes or a single 80m rope.

Most of the grade 4 pitches are fairly dull, but some good climbing on the other pitches. We did it without any trad gear, but would recommend a few wires and couple of long slings. Start of crux pitch (3) has about 20ft of VDiff/Severe climbing before first bolt. Last pitch only 5a. All in all, a pleasant ramble which has its moments.
