If you are climbing in France, DO NOT MISS THIS GEM! This route is spectacular! I happened upon it while looking for a different climb and without knowing anything but the name (painted on the rock at the start), couldn't resist such a beautiful line. Their is a difficult traverse over a bulge on the second pitch that was the crux for me. Those that don't like cracks will find the finishing crack to be the crux.
Approach by heading up the main trail past the cemetery at the back of the town of Orpierre. When you reach Le Belleric the trail will take an Eastward direction accross the top of the gully/valley. Follow this until you reach the base of the west side of the South pillar. This should be the near the base of the highest point of the cliff. Find a short trail that leads uphill to the base of the climb. If you traverse around to the far side of the south pillar, you have gone too far. The name of the climb "La Voyage" is painted at the start just inside of the large left facing dihedral formed by the headwall and the pillar.
Quickdraws for the excellent glue-in bolts.
