We went to Aiglun to climb « Masotherapie pour tendons maniaques », a 270 meters routes graded EX (extremely hard) with 10 pitches up to 8a. It’s a bit « old style » many pitches of vertical wall with tiny crimps.
Pitches: 7a+, 6c+, 6c+, 7a, 6c, 7b, 7c, 6a+, 6b, 8a.

Description: the route starts on the left side of the cliff (see below). The nicest pitches are the 2nd to the 7th. The 7c and 8a are hard and not pleasant, the 2 easy pitches are dirty with some bushes. The route is very well bolted. Walk to the cliff: 25 minutes, climb: 6hr, descent: 35 minutes.
