Unreeeeeeeeal! Incredibly sustained climbing, every single pitch is cracking. Led odds including the crux cannelures pitch.

Exceptional. 1.5h walk in. A little under 6h for the route (inch queues!)

Fell on P2 as hands and rock too cold. Really enjoyed P8 and P10, though needed a rest on both

The best route of the trip, amazing!
Jake Young - AltLd O/S - 14/Aug/13 with alex
Outstanding route. Very sustained at 6a and 6a+, I think the crux 5th pitch is worth 6b. Also some of the hard moves are quite runout.
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 15/Sep/12 with Andy
Led even pitches.Pitch 5 is the crux, sustained and probably 6b. Took 6.5 hours

Beautiful climb - a real modern classic. One I've wanted to do ever since the Madier 9 years ago, and it didn't disappoint. Technical, sustained and varied, from intricate balancy slabs where you carefully tease out the moves, to glorious grabby flakes where you just look up and go. All this, plus great chocolate tarts just 10 minutes away in the Soreiller hut. What more could you want? Tim P1, me P2 etc.

Did the 6a 6c 7a+ then 5+ back on route then the 6c 6b option higher up so a mixture of 2 routes

Flipping amazing. 12 top notch pitches to a stunning top. Possibly my most enjoyable days rock climbing.
Sankey - AltLd O/S - 05/Jul/11 with Tony (Jon and Ed also on route)
Amazing route. Alpine Club guidebook does have the wrong photo - we used a printed-out topo from camptocamp instead. Climbing is fairly sustained at its grade, of the 12 pitches 10 are right at around 6a. I don't understand why some people say these pitches are easy for the grade, AC guidebook I think has got only 3 or 4 pitches as “5/6a”, someone here wrote that there are maybe only 2 pitches of 6a, rest is easier. I disagree – all 9 or 10 pitches graded 6a or 6a+ on camptocamp, were of comparable difficulty to any other 6a that I’ve climbed in popular crags in Spain, France, Italy, Austria, Portland….

Great climb. We did the version in the Alpine Club Guide which is very different to the French guide version. The so called origional start has very run out bolts. The AC guide also takes you through a 7a roof! The French (correct?) version looks a lot more mellow.

An unbelievably good route on amazing rock. Sustained and pulling on the gear will not get you up it! Bolted on lead, several cruxes mean a 30 footer if you blow it.
