He was blowing really hard today! We had planned to go climb the Aiguilles d'en Vau, but after reflection we fell back on an area extremely well protected from the Mistral.
The Cirque des Dansaïres is located in a pleasant valley in the Garlaban massif. It is reached by a rather difficult approach walk of about twenty minutes. The main sector is very well protected from the Mistral and offers routes from 4b to 6c. The rock is compact and the equipment is excellent and abundant.
I particularly recommend the very homogeneous left lanes in the 4. Finally the first pitch of "Lili des Bellons" in 5b is magnificent.
