Climbing: Peillon Cave

Saturday we went back to Peillon’s cave for the first time since spring last year. After the heavy rain of this winter many routes are still wet but there’s still enough to do. I made a desperate attempt in Le Souffle du Vizir (8b+) which is a combination of A bout de Souffle (8b) and Vizir (8a+). I fell totally pumped in the upper hard section of Vizir that I still haven’t figured out. Anna tried Y’a pas d’arrangement (8a) but there are still too many wet holds, then she sent Batman (7c+).

Routes: 38 routes from 6c to 8c. See information and topo of Peillon
