Comments: Does anyone know what the bolts to that follow up left to start the second pitch is? It seemed harder than .10a, and there was a separate bolt line that trended right (as the description says)...thanks!

Comments: Hi! I am thinking about heading to Grenoble July 9-12. I am looking for a partner. I climb sport and trad, but have only brought my harness, shoes, belay device, and chalk bag with me from the US.

Please be in touch!

Comments: @claramie, I also went through the cave for P3. Fun, exposed climbing through a stemming chimney.

Comments: Now that was fun! Especially liked the you're-not-done-yet crux at the top.

Comments: Be cautious of a large block that is moving about 2/3 the way up, directly right of the arete. Had my belayer move just in case...

Comments: The moves at the bottom are committing, but I'd say still in the .10 range....just a little head-y.

Comments: I agree it seemed harder than the 5.9 to the right. A little headier too. Fun though, loved the stemming.

Comments: I agree. Harder than 10d. Got off of it and was like "wow, some 10s are just crazy hard!"

Comments: I also started in the right crack section and traversed left. These moves can be well protected with a #4 high in the right crack before stepping down and over onto the face.

Comments: good morning sun in the winter. used slings on chicken heads for the majority of the pro on Pitch 1. A bit of loose rock will clean up with more traffic.

Comments: This climb was thought provoking, long (for Shelf) and super fun. Fairly committing moves on small holds and over two roofs. The exposure on the arÍte is well worth it. Highly recommended.

Comments: I thought the crux came on the face right after pulling the roof. Great pitch.

Comments: Does anyone know what the current situation is w climbing in Cuba? I understand some police/guards are cracking down on both foreign and local climbers? Is climbing still allowed and in which areas? Any beta would be greatly appreciated. Headed to Cuba in two days.

Comments: also loved the last move..Teeny-tiny! My guide book gives it a 5.11d R. I'd probably stick with that.

Comments: Personally I thought this route was stellar. Short route, 6 bolts, but a nice variation of technical moves on aesthetic rock. Four stars.
