Access to the place
Hiking to the start 10'
Find a path on the other side of the road which descends to climb up the opposite side. Follow it steeply uphill, then fork right to reach the foot of the track. Obvious start under the plaque, 1st nail visible at 5m.
The route is east-facing and 160m long in 5 pitches (30m, 45m, 25m, 20m, 40m). The equipment in place (bolts) is minimal, the belays equipped but not linked, except for R4. The compulsory level is V+, as we believe the old-fashioned ratings given in the topos are slightly underestimated. Bring 10 quickdraws and a set of friends from 0.3 to 2 for protection between very distant points (except on the V+ pitch of L4). Easy-to-install protection.
L1 (30m, V)
Climb up the undulating slab to a small overhang where the large plate begins. Not impressive, athletic but with very good holds. Above, climb R1 belay, next to a tree and under the dihedral.
L2 (45m, V)
Follow the dihedral, protecting yourself especially at the start. After a fairly vertical section, the next part is a little inclined with a very nice crack on a plate to climb. We pass an old rusty belay and end up on the top of the plate at R2. A beautiful aerial pitch.
L3 (25m, V/V+)
The most beautiful pitch of the route! Descend to the right on a small, increasingly narrow, unprotected ledge to clip the 1st nail. Then attack straight ahead on a very vertical wall with lots of nice horizontal cracks for the hands. Pass a belay point and continue obliquely left to finish by traversing to belay point R3. We looped back to just above R2.
L4 (20m, V+)
A good pitch at the relay exit, well protected and with good lateral holds and exit onto a ledge. Finish in IV+ diagonally left to relay R4.
L5 (40m, IV)
Length to finish the route. Easy climb that ends by passing between shrubs. R5 belay on the ridge.
Once again, we had trouble following a trail all the way down. Head north and descend following what looks like a path. Further down, we lost it, so should we stay not too far from the ridge? Anyway, in the end, one way or another, we reach the road just above the parking lot.
