Description

Named for the area's interesting multipitch sport route, this section provides scattered 4 or 5 pitch routes in a beautiful setting upstream from Chalet Malines.

Getting There

This section can be acessed via two different approaches:
1) (Recommended) From Palud drive counter-clockwise on D23 and try to find a limited parking spot at Chalet Malines. Follow Sentier Martel (the 15km inner gorge trail that extends from Chalet de la Maline to Point Sublime) as it passes an iron ladder, winding down and around a few bluffs. After ~15 minutes of hiking, you will encounter a sharp switchback to the right at which point you have two options: cut to your left, away from the trail, across the talus, trying to stay paralell to the cliff for 300m OR continue down a couple more switchbacks to a large sand/scree slope. Turn left up this slope and as you face the cliff, aim up and right for the distinctive toe of Free Tibet. This option includes more waste of elevation but is easier to spot your destination.

2) Approach as if going to Grand Eycharme: from Palud, drive 15.5 km clock-wise around D23, past all of the initial overlooks, the tunnels and finally a set of switchbacks leading back down into the Gorge. Park below the 6th and final switchback. Follow a trail and occasional cairns in a perpendicular direction from the road. Pass the rappels of the Petit Eycharme and Monier as you begin to contour to the right along the cliff top. Two rappels (50m, 35m) down Pipes Chaudes Et Sueurs Froides deposit you at the base of this cliff section. Walk climbers left for the climb Free Tibet.
