MrRiley 26 Oct, 2017 AltLd O/S Best of the Dallles-Coco-Afin trio. Grades in the 2017 verdon guide more representative, last 3 pitches all 6a. The climbing is fantastic but polished in places. You need to trend up and right halfway through pitch 4 to avoid ending up at the 36.15 belay. Trip report: http://www.mistymountainhop.net/2017/10/an-exposed-spanking-in-the-gorge-du-verdon/

Adam Potter ?Sep, 2013 AltLd The last 2 pitches we did 'direct' up shiny gold bolts just left of where the actual route seemed to go. I think this may have been the original line. These last two pitches were excellent.

rustaldo 14 Aug, 2011 AltLd O/S great route! did it in the late afternoon to escape the heat. nice traverse for first pitch, think we went slightly off route for pitch 4.. spent 40mins in the dark, climbing by headtorches, Olly had trouble with the top pitch (crux) which was a pretty polished overhang. nice varied route overall.
