This is a classic 9 pitch moderate in the Verdon Gorge. The crux (5.10c) appears on the second pitch going through an off-width squeeze. The area around the off-width is quite polished limiting any face climbing options. The remaining pitches are easier and are full of amazing jugs and bomber feet. Euro grades: 1-5c, 2-6a+, 3-3, 4-5a, 5-4a, 6-5c, 7-4c, 8-5c, 9-5a. The climb is around 200m total and will bring you right back up to your car.


The route is located at the bottom of the approach to Falaise du Belvedere des Malines. The route name is painted in red at the bottom of the climb.


Most of the route is well bolted minus the third pitch which is quite run out. There are bolted anchors at the top of every pitch.
