Altitude 1813m a.s.l
Big, committing, quality limestone multi-pitching. The wall doesn't seem to be visited loads despite the adventurous, memorable climbing. The guide says 'commitment' is the common denominator - commitment in terms of both climbing and access: routes are perched high and above a plinth of loose scrambling terrain, you wouldn't want to be caught out in a storm here.
The rock quality is impressive but loose rock isn't uncommon, beware of runouts, loose holds and rockfall. There are bolts where you need them. The routes are 380-400m in length, not including the scramble approach. The wall tops out onto the 'Pointe de Sales'.
About 3 hours from the road to the base of the wall, including an hour of scree and then scrambling up the 'plinth'.
The wall overlooks the refuge d'Anterne (or Alfred Wills refuge) so the path up to the scree is well maintained and well trodden.
