This is hardly the most impressive cliff in the canyon, yet with a good assortment of very long moderates & an East-facing aspect, this can be a good place to warm up on chilly days.

The cliff offers a wide variety of grades from 5.9 to 5.13+, but the best routes are in the 5.11a to 5.12a range. Most of the routes climb long slabs of smooth gray stone, though there is a tiny cave with some short tufa sections to the right.

This cliff is essentially the right flank of the Gran Boveda cave. This can make route-finding a bit tricky as its tough to distinguish the dividing line between the two sectors. There are routes on both sides of the arete, those on the right face East and those on the left face south. Most of the routes to the left are hard, but there is one nice-looking 5.11, "Amelie", that bakes in the sun most of the day.

Getting There 

Nuit de Temps is on the West side of the canyon, immediately right of "Gran Boveda". Approach as for Gran Boveda, hiking into the bottom of the canyon. Walk up-canyon until you're even with the north end of the Gran Boveda Cave. Pickup a trail on the left, heading through some bushes up the hill. Stay left at the first fork, to reach the toe of a slabby buttress. The routes are on either side of this buttress.

This line offers the best tufa climbing at Nuit de Temps, though its nothing to write home about considering its location. The route is fairly long, but is split by a number of good rests that make it more bouldery than enduro.Begin at the far left end of the big slopey ledge. Make an easy move to mantle onto the ledge, or scramble up from the far right. Juggy tufas lead up the steep wall, trending right towards the obvious right-facing corner. Difficult moves lead into the corner and a good...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
