Rockfax Description
II, 200m. Something of an Envers classic with sustained interest throughout.
1) 6a+. Climb a slab to the right of a steep crack (it is possible to climb the crack directly at 6b+) and then step left at the top of the slab and head up the superb hand-crack above.
2) 6a+. Go up the slab above the belay and follow it slightly rightwards to reach a layback crack. Climb this to the foot of a short wall.
3) 6a. Climb the wall followed by a corner.
4) 6a+. Continue up a series of excellent cracks and corners, passing a roof on the right before coming back left.
5) 5c. Carry on up the corner system, passing two overhangs on the way. These look intimidating and are exposed, but getting past them is actually pretty steady.
6) 5c. Slabbier (but still tricky) ground leads onto the summit of the Tour Verte. © Rockfax
