Climbing and Running in Verdon

Saturday: Rock Climbing in Verdon, Hulk area

We went to the Hulk sector. We parked at the Point Sublime which is not the closest parking… The walk to the cliff crosses the Verdon with a Tyrolien and goes up on ladders and a step trail. The Hulk cliff is nice and offers ~20 routes from 6b to 8c (the topo is available on Charlotte Durif’s website).

We climbed La Raie du Hulk (7b), Poll de Hulk (7b+) and made a couple of tries in Graoun Tazief (8a), all are great routes.

Sunday: Trail running on Sentier Martel and Imbut

We started at Chalet de la Maline, followed the trail Sentier Martel to the Point Sublime and went back to the junction with the trail Imbut. Then we run along the Imbut and went back to the Chalet de la Maline. This a very nice combination of trails with amazing view of the Verdon. Take a lot of water.

Distance: 36km, ascent:1600m / descent: 1600m, 7h45.
