Description

Arête des Raisins is a fun route, quickly climbed, with great views. Reasonably well bolted.

Three pitches:

  • Pitch 1: climb up the steep but well featured face, a bit run out, clip a bolt and wander up to the right on slabby ramp features. 5.7, 20m.
  • Pitch 2: Easier ground on somewhat broken terrain leads right to a chimney/crack. Climb up the chimney. 5.5 for around 20m.
  • Pitch 3: Follow the chimney for around 20m then another 10m of easier terrain to the top of the formation. 5.7.

Enjoy the great view across the bay and down to Cap Morgiou!

Descent: Rappel route. Should be doable with two 60m ropes in 2 rappels.

Location

Located on the left side of the left wall, just right of a small pillar at the end of the solid buttress.

The left-most route at Falaise du Renard.

Protection

Fairly well bolted. Fixed belay stations.
