Description 

Superb, technical rock climbing on vertical rock. Fixin is a long band of limestone measuring from less than 10 all the way up to a little over 30m tall. There are well over 100 routes here ranging in difficulty from easy to insanely difficult. And with only a few exceptions of some of the classic routes, the rock is mostly unpolished.

Getting There 

Drive to the village of Fixin and stay on the road Rue Noisot past a small hotel "Chez Jeanette" on your left until you reach a large dirt parking area with picnic benches. Park here and walk up the trail which leads uphill in the same direction you were driving. It's a very gentle incline which leads you up to the far end of the crag in 15 minutes. From there you can work your way back and locate routes as you go.
The GPS coordinates point to the parking area.

The start is very powerful and balancy and though the rock quality looks suspect, it's good and sticky. At the 4th bolt, watch out for loose rock on your left. Clip the 5th bolt and continue up the slab on much easier rock to a much higher 6th bolt and up through another to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
