One of the best 6c's on the Côte d'Azur goes up the wall and tufa via some gritsone grappling. The chipped holds were created many years ago by people who lived at the base of the cliff and collected eggs from the cliff face! © Rockfax

After a couple of days rest we came down this morning popped the draws in on clipstick and sent it first go. Really pleased, felt harder than anything I had done before but today felt smooth and controlled.

Clipsticked it to get all the draws in and get a better idea where I'd clip from, 4th being the hardest and 5th and Top feeling a bit spicy despite good holds as they're run out a bit. After I got 2 clean top rope ascents but wasn't feeling my best as I was just knackered and it was freezing so both felt a struggle. May have tweaked a muscle in my back coz of the cold so tomorrow we'll have an easier day!

With the top rope in I managed a clean ascent first try which I was pleased with. Now just a few more rehearsals and the lead! ????

Dogged the hell out of it even with the clipstick to make the 4th and 5th clip then got my ass up to the last bolt but didnt feel confident enough to clip the chains so bailed. During lunch the local British lady wanted another burn so put the draws in the chains leaving us with a top rope in after she danced up it!

Just a tickle today as we arrived late and spent about 2hrs walking in taking pictures open mouthed. Route feels good, got up to 3rd clip no probs and had a brief look going up for fourth. This may just go.

Amazing to be climbing here on Christmas day! Crag more or less bone dry and obviously not too cold in the shade.
