Anne getting ready to climb on the Face Sud


The Face Sud is a popular fall/winter destination because of its ease of access, south facing aspect and more than 100 quality climbs with grades ranging from 6a+ (i think there is only one) to 8c, with an abundance of routes from 7a+ and up. And again, there is a great variety of climbing here, from super steep to techy.

Getting There 

From the parking take the trail before crossing the bridge. Walk along the river and after about 5 minutes you will see the long cliffline of the Face Sud on the right. Pretty much anyone of the first social trails on the right will take you to the base of the cliff. Once at the cliff, it is pretty easy to just walk up and down the cliffline. To walk from one end of the sector to the other probably takes about 10 minutes.

Quality, technical face climbing, using small tufa like features up black rock, leads to a powerful roof gaurding the anchors. A great climb with fun and varied climbing throughout. There are two definite cruxes, one down low in the technical climbing, and one above in the roof. Solid at the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
