Climbing in Cape Canaille

Yesterday with Julien we did an original sequence at Cape Canaille. We went down the “Philémon” return trail to where the veer crosses the relay of the second length of the track called “Everything is a matter of angle”. The goal is to be able to climb the hard sections (7a and 7c) before the arrival of the sun while respecting our parental obligations in the morning :-), drop off at the nursery and school!

The timing was perfect and we were able to try the 7c before the sun arrived. Julien took the time to dissect the movements, I follow behind him second well flashed by his methods. We have already planned to come back, just to chain him both in the lead from the top! The atmosphere is insane and gassy.

To end the day sum go try the 8a last length “sands of time”. I had refitted this length last year with a friend, but had never come back to climb in it. The least we can say is that there is not much passage! But the way is rather nice with a block section at the beginning that took us a while to decipher, the rest seems doable after a good tracking and cleaning. A case to follow what…
