Les Colonnettes*** 8a

Rockfax Description
With aid at the start itís only 7c+, but thatís just cheating really. The cunning may find an upside-down no hands bat hang rest! The enormous extension is The Black Beau, 8b+. © ROCKFAX

Fantastic climbing, quite steady once all the tricks are figured out. Aid start, was too cold to lay one on off the deck!

Ultimate line. Fantastic climbing!

Without aid (aiding the start is just dogging the route ;) Great to do this after getting so frustrated on the starting boulder 2 years ago. Steady today. The boulder is kinda shit but the rest of it is stunning.

(aid start version) Amazing route. Good contender for best looking line in ceuse, (maybe cos its more or less the only tufa!)
