7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 6a, 2) 6a+, 3) 6a, 4) 6a+, 5) 6b+, 6) 5a, 7) 4a. A fine sustained climb up the pillar right of the long corner. It fizzles out a bit towards the top but only after covering loads of interesting ground. Finishing up Coeur de verre in one huge sustained pitch (or two shorter ones if you must) adds to the experience a lot! © Rockfax

Only the first 3 pitches. The bottom two pitches were nails for the grade. We then drifted left onto Sucepe without realising, and spent a while debating where we were until finishing up Passion d'amour as the sun dipped below the horizon.

Brilliant climb. Thought the crux was one of the thin face pitches rather than the 6B+ pitch. Finished up Passion... Was knackered at the top. A perfect end to a great first verdon experience

Done in 5 pitches and finished up Cœur de Verre. Absolutely brilliant route - every pitch worthwhile. Led the crux pitch after much jibbering getting off the belay. Not too hard for Verdon 6b+ and eases the higher you go.

I (eventually) walked away from this route feeling utterly dejected. Took pitches 1, 3, 5 & 6. Felt insecure on the first pitch. Fell of the second (6a+) pitch on second! Tried to lead the crux pitch but couldn't get past the 1st bolt and I thought I was solid at 6b+. Linked the final two pitches in one 60m push. It pissed down with rain first mind, so the wet ropes were quite a burden from 40m upwards. Utter, utter fail.

Kate ran the last two pitches together in a storm! But she might have been off line on something harder (6a?) if the original finishes in the gully...

Lead all pitches. Very hard work as we were too hot and did not have enough water (best not to mention why!) Would have been very enjoyable if it had been a bit cooler. Some lovely pitches and only a little bit of polish near the bottom. Be warned the belays are mostly semi-hanging! Also contains a few classic bits of verdon runout between the bolts, especially on the final blast for the chains at the end of each pitch. Would recommend doing it in the afternoon if you are confident you can move quickly as it goes into shade about 3 or 4ish and becomes alot nicer to climb.

climbed with a group lead by Gigi Mario, the buddhist monk who is also an alpine guide. But he let me do my own thing, with Yogananda, a sicilian prince apprentice monk seconding.
