Les Rideaux de Gwendal*** 6c+
90m, 9 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 6c, 2) 6b+, 3) 7b+, 4) 6a+, 5) 6c, 6) 6b+, 7) 6c+, 8) 6a, 9) 5. Nine sumptuous pitches up one of the most beautiful zones of L'Escales. The third pitch is a desperate 7b+ that can easily aided on small wires but the rest of the route is a must for the competent 6c+/E4 leader. In particular pitch 7 offers 45m of sustained and airy face climbing with a technical and confusing crux. Approach by the Ticket Danger abseils, then one last 45m abseil from the right-hand end of the ledge down the route's first pitch. © ROCKFAX

Alt. lead w/ Erik M. Followed the crux pitch with some hangs. The rest in free. Have done the Gwendal>Pichenbul>Chtuluh linkup before. The crux is still a sand bag at 7b+

First 6 pitches of this with the last 4 pitches of Pichenibule. An incredible experience. Aided the 7b+ pitch through the thin crack. Pitch 8 of Pichenibule was just amazing.

Pitches 1-6, aided pitch 3, bust my shoulder on pitch 2 doh!
soph - AltLd O/S - 04/Apr/15 with Dougie Swanson-Low

Got the first 6c+ and 6c pitch no problem but couldn't get through the top 6c+. Bloody hell. Fell off a lot trying that. Maybe tighter shoes. Bailed and went into pichenuble to finish up. Middle 6c pitch is awesome and dogged through the 7b pitch just on the bolts. Small cam/wires might have helped but a few moves between bolts gets you there

From the bottom, 6b+, 7b+, 6c, 6b+, 6c+, 6a, 5+. Really good nice climbing! 6c pitch and second 6b+ were great.
