All 9 pitches. Lots of traffic, should have started earlier. Make a good choice not to do the descent in flip-flops. Look for the red dots on the way down to avoid a rappel. Bit of rope access work after starting up what I think was the 6c route that crosses this one. Awesome day out

Pulled on bolt at crux on second pitch - much harder than rest of route which was all fairly straight forward, fairly well bolted, but think we may have had trad gear too!
Danjones - AltLd O/S - 16/May/11 with Simon Cash

P 5 - 9
stuart34 - AltLd O/S - 07/Apr/11 with Chris James

Another spanking adventure - two hours to find the start of the route, the crux pitch (pitch 2) felt like I was humping the spine of a whale, then two thirds of the way up and an almight storm breaks with lightning immediately overhead - an overall awesome day!!
Saurus - AltLd O/S - Apr/11 with Barfani Chita

Awesome climb and a nice way to end the week in Verdon. Shame about the rain. pitches 1~4 no problem, after that it was a struggle to find the bolts sometimes and also found that a couple of belay stations were missing / had only one bolt left. Bold in places but pretty cool. Excellent view.
