pancakeandchips 8 Aug, 2018 AltLd scarily committing. Rope got stuck on the second abseil in, spent half an hour prusiking 50m back up the rope. The actual climb felt harder than 5c, but may have been down to situation, heat, and tiredness. Type 1 fun for rosie, not sure yet if it was type 2 or plain not fun for me.

MrRiley 23 Oct, 2017 AltLd O/S Much better than it looks from the abseils, sticking mostly to the clean rock. All the 5c pitches are excellent and the other two are poor. Trip report: http://www.mistymountainhop.net/2017/10/an-exposed-spanking-in-the-gorge-du-verdon/

Angus Rankin 29 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S Nice intro route. Good abseils and belay spots. 2nd last pitch (5) has some very shiny holds near the top. Apart from that it was fantastic!

atom 3 Nov, 2016 AltLd O/S Awesome route! Brown trousers on this one, excellent rock and loved the Vultures flying close. Lead pitches 1, 2 (from half way through from some new belay anchors not in our rockfax guide) 3 and 5. Pitch 5 felt very bold as I missed a bolt just below the anchor, a sling over a block gave some peace of mind instead

Ed Houghton 31 Jul, 2015 Lead O/S Great and classic (old pitons still in rock) intro to sport multipitch in the Verdon Gorge. Very doable 5+ climbing with spaced bolts, as is to be expected in the VG, sometimes 7 or 8 metres between bolts. Careful not to miss the abseil anchors on the way down - they are separate to but cross over anchor points on a couple of climbs. If you miss the first belay you're liable to some serious rope snag...

UnkArl 17 Oct, 2013 AltLd O/S Bailed from Pichenibule when we got to the Jardins - sprinted up this like it wasn't there. Took us 4 hours to drag ourselves up the first 4 pitches of Pichenibule, took us 2 hours to climb this route! I'd say the grades on this route are pretty accurate which makes a total mockery of the grades give to the first 4 pitches of Pichenibule which were MUCH MUCH harder. P1+2 - Me (ran both pitches together) P3 - Kat P4+5 - Me (ran both pitches together) P6 - Kat
