Description 

More south facing but steep enough to provide some shade in the summer and late afternoon shade as well. Not very crowded due to the difficulty of the routes. Home to numerous 5.14's and harder, Les Collonette is the classic 8a. There are a handfull of easier routes at the right end of this section of wall, easier in this case being 5.11+ and 5.12.

Getting There 

From the waterfall head right along the cliff for 15 minutes or so, otherwise hike straight up to it on trails from the campground. This is the section of cliff that looks like the side of a cruise ship with blue, grey and gold streaks.

Les Colonnettes 5.13 8a 29 X- 30 E7 6c  Europe : France : ... : Secteur Biograpie
When I was there a winch start past the first 2 bolts (I think it was 2) was considered legit and the route was 5.13a. The boulder problem bumps the grade up a bit even though it is not excedingly hard V6 or V7ish. Climb the long tuffa up the steep wall to its end. Continue up the overhanging face on pockets to the anchor. An extention has been done called The Black Bean and is 5.14- and a 70m pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
