Mille et une pattes 28th August

A train journey to Vallorcine and a walk up to Le Passet, a huge gneiss wall with some great routes. We went to climb mille et une pattes which, if my French translation is correct, means a thousand and one paws.
We climbed twelve very varied pitches - easy slabs, steep slabby walls, corners and all with bolts just where they felt they should be. The five abseils to get down were quite fun too down a large water-worn gully.
(Route info - 6a, 5c obl, 340m, abseil descent)
