Fun de Chichunne 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ E7 6c  Europe : Greece : ... : Grande Grotta
An odyssey of steep tufa climbing through a central line in the Grand Grotta, Fun de Chichunne is a classic adventure. The moves off the ground aren't terribly hard, but the pump builds consistently and things get a bit harder about half-way up.Energy conservation is the name of the game. Enjoy the journey....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
