Great and classic (old pitons still in rock) intro to sport multipitch in the Verdon Gorge. Very doable 5+ climbing with spaced bolts, as is to be expected in the VG, sometimes 7 or 8 metres between bolts. Careful not to miss the abseil anchors on the way down - they are separate to but cross over anchor points on a couple of climbs. If you miss the first belay you're liable to some serious rope snag...

Bailed from Pichenibule when we got to the Jardins - sprinted up this like it wasn't there. Took us 4 hours to drag ourselves up the first 4 pitches of Pichenibule, took us 2 hours to climb this route! I'd say the grades on this route are pretty accurate which makes a total mockery of the grades give to the first 4 pitches of Pichenibule which were MUCH MUCH harder. P1+2 - Me (ran both pitches together) P3 - Kat P4+5 - Me (ran both pitches together) P6 - Kat
