La roujas 3 >>
|100m, 3 pitches. A superb outing on immaculate slabs featuring delicate moves in exposed positions.
1) 5+. Climb fairly directly on pockets and small holds setting off just left of some bushes.
2) 6a+. Snake up the blank slab to follow the line of least resistance before finding the belay above the roof.
3) 5+. Trend rightwards up the slab.
There is a fourth pitch (5 ) that should be avoided due to unstable rock. Twin ropes are useful for the wandering second pitch. Abseil down Les racines du ciel. © ROCKFAX|
5c+(35m), 6a+(35m), 5c(20m)
A cracking outing on immaculate slabs featuring thin moves in exposed positions. Pitch 1 climbs fairly directly on pockets and small holds. The second 2 snakes up the blank slab to follow the line of least resistance before finding the belay above the roof. Pitch 3 traverses rightwards. There is a 4th pitch (5b) that is not recommended in the new guide due to loose rock and is on old bolts. If you're not used to technical slabs, or maybe even if you are, the climbing can feel a bit hard for the grade.
Lower off down 'racines du ciel'.
This climb is in 12 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
