Finishing up Les Cinq Ânes on La Traversée Bourg...


La Traversée Bourgeois is a handy, exposed finish to a fine route.

Traverse left across thin holds on a steep face. Gain the prow and pull up onto easy ground and a ledge on the left side of the prow. Belay from tree anchors.

Take care with the finish as the ledge tends to be kind of slippery with moist dirt, grass and leaves and is fairly exposed.

Hike off up to the road. A fun, exposed finish to a great route.


This route is an optional finish to Les Cinq Ânes and keeps the grade at a modest 4c.

Walk off top of route through the woods to the road.


Bolt protected.

Anchor from trees at the end of the route on easy ground.
