Great route, can be accessed by walking in from the valley but makes for quite a big day. If you don't fancy abbing in i would recommend parking at villeard Notre dame, walk down the main path starting a few bends down the road (route 7) to the start. The walk back to villeard after finish is not far and there is a bar/restaurant ????

lead first and last pitch. Andy lead the others. best approach is to walk in to the bottom from the waymarked path just below Villard Notre Dame village. 5c pitches are misleading in the guidebook. We ended up doing 4 pitchs at 5c level - we think this was because of ab stations that were indistinguisable from belay points so we ended splitting the 5c pitches up. The last 5b pitch looked harmless but has a 5b (or even 5c) move as sting in the tail just before the final belay. Gear generally good - recent bolts, well equipement belay points. We took a small rack as well but very little opportunity to add gear as the rock is very compact. Situation is fantastic - it a bit like the 'lost world'!

Stunning. Straightfoward hour and a half walk to the foot. Exit path is on left bank looking downstream, the opposite side of top out.
