Rockfax Description
1) 4b, 2) 5a, 3) 5a,4) 3a, 5) 5a, 6) 4c, 7) 2c.
Easy well bolted and very popular with nice climbing on good rock. You won't be alone in the high season.
Descent - From the top of the climb follow a path leftward through the trees to anchors at the cliff edge. A short abseil (10m) gains a second anchor and a 50m abseil from here reaches a big ledge - scramble off right then down a left-trending ramp - looking out. © Rockfax

βeta: Rockfax approach description isn\'t great - cross the road bridge and carry on straight up a track through the buildings. Turn right at the last building, and follow the path with red and white waymarks until a small section of La Petite Dalles appears on your left. Here, follow the path signposted for Tête de la Draye/Les Choulières/Chambran (slight left) and then when it splits again after a few metres follow Les Choulières/Chambran. At what3words ///plan.tablecloths.envisioned follow the path uphill on your left. The first two routes of the sector are here, this route and La Dernier Neanderthal are just over a short scramble.

βeta: Note that the first abseil is very short, don't continue over the next edge as I did !

βeta: Started the first pitch and then alternated to complete my first multi pitch sports climb where I was leading. Lots of good foot and hand holds all the way up. Though admit I did have to spend some time on the 3rd pitch, looking for hand holds. The abseil down was great, two other climbers used 2x60m ropes to do the full abseil without the first 10m abseil. Which they let us kindly use after we’d missed the 10m anchor and were trying to ascend.

βeta: Gets curiously elusive grade of 5b+ in local Ailefroide Climbs (2017 revision). All felt pretty easy but in interest of completeness thought I’d mention.
