Rod's Euro 2010 - Trip Report 16-Sep-2010 At 10:08:04 PM rod
Off to Verdon for 5 days next week after a work trip - any recommendations on recently bolted routes 6a-7a?

Went to Virage 19 yesterday, new to me: dangerous amounts of rockfall coming over the top from what we assume were mountain goats higher up above the face. Once the kinks and heeby jeebies were gotten out of the way things went surprisingly well, did a nice complex one in the 6a+/6c range (don't really know the grade, seemed pretty hard) then we got onto the 7b of the day. First run feeling it out got it down to 1 near shut down crux, spent another run giving that section a bit more effort then the last one not sending but having made really good progress...don't think I'll get it in this trip but it was one of the more pleasant 7th grade climbs of the year. My partner for the day will definitely bag it on the next fresh run, climbed it really well.
