Description 

This notable cliff, the largest and tallest at Freyr, contains over 200 routes to choose from.

Aspects are west and south.

Grades range from popular and well polished 4’s on up to as hard as you’d want (8+). Both single and multi pitch routes, the longest at Freyr, can be found here.

Classic routes, popular with some established in the early thirties, can be slippery but the rock is superb and the protection adequate.

This may well be the crown jewel of Belgian climbing and the most important cliff in Belgium.


Getting There 

Located to the south of Le Pape, the most common approach may be the Sentier Christiane trail off the paved road just north and across the road from the Chamonix Café.

The trail from the parking area by the CAB Refuge also leads to the base of the west face.

Follow the ramp out left and up to the next belay station around 50 feet away. These pitches could probably be combined. 5.4/5.6.The "interesting" pitch. Traverse across to the left and note a cord attached to a fixed point above on the blank looking terrain ah...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
