Description 

This is a lesser travelled area because it is overshadowed a bit by Ceuse. The limestone cliffs provide a dramatic backdrop to the quaint little village of Orpierre. There is a wealth of sport routes of many grades and even some long mixed routes on the Quiquillon.

Les ailes du désir 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Europe : France : ... : Secteur Chateau
A really fun route...steep and gymnastic route the grade. One of the most popular climbs in the sector. A bouldery start (1st bolt easily pre-clipped)leads to gymnastic climbing up giant horizontal breaks, there is even a 'sit down' rest at one point. Continue climbing the horizontals, traversing ever so slightly to the right, to a pumpy crux near the top. A couple more thin face moves land you at the anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
