Climbing through the distinctive geometry of Le Bo...

Fire Restrictions - summer months! MORE INFO >>>


Grade reflects first pitch only. Pitch 1: 4c+. Pitch 2: 5b. Pitch 3: 5b+.

Climb up through the inverted V-shaped roof and continue to a ledge, then up to an anchor above the ledge.

Pitch two climbs up then takes a hard right to the anchor on La Boulon de Droite and the third pitch finishes up that route as well.

Neat face climbing on surprisingly sticky rock.

Looks intimidating from below but the holds magically appear when needed. Climbing through the shallow inverted V roof is bonus!


Starts straight below and climbs straight up through the obvious “A” shaped inverted V roof which appears as a notch from a distance.

Left of Les Bienfaits de Bacchus and right of Retour a la Case Depart.


Bolted sport route to fixed anchor.
