Orage d’etoiles – Monday 27th July

Back to Orage d'etoiles on another pefectly sunny day and this time we ignored both the 6a and the 5a starts and climbed through and under the boulders to reach the main pitches!
The lower pitches are a bit vegetated and felt very exposed as the valley appears far below but higher up, the exposure lessens, the angle eases a bit and there are some good ledges for belays. There was also some loose rock around and the approach gully was probably not a place to hang around.
Overall, this is climbing a most fantastic situation and it is also one of the most visible routes from the village.
Grade D+, 300m, 5b/5c
