More south facing but steep enough to provide some shade in the summer and late afternoon shade as well. Not very crowded due to the difficulty of the routes. Home to numerous 5.14's and harder, Les Collonette is the classic 8a. There are a handfull of easier routes at the right end of this section of wall, easier in this case being 5.11+ and 5.12.

Getting There 

From the waterfall head right along the cliff for 15 minutes or so, otherwise hike straight up to it on trails from the campground. This is the section of cliff that looks like the side of a cruise ship with blue, grey and gold streaks.

The hardest moves on the whole route may actually me the opening boulder problem moving to and off of a tiny 2 finger ear. Of course this says nothing about the sustained nature of the route with few "easy" moves and really only one rest down low with a knee bar in the shallow right facing corner. For more specific beta watch any number of videos.One of the most repeated 9a+'s in the world but also one of the oldest....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
