Parc national des Grands-Jardins / ZEC des Martres le Dôme Wet Dreams
5.9 Wet Dreams

Best route I've climbed on 'le Dôme' so far. First pitch is a stellar 5 star climb in itself. Good rack management is required for this long pitch which offers constant exposure and difficulty. The remainder of the climb offers great climbing interrupted by a short "not so great" section. P2 and P3 can be linked but careful rope drag management is required, as well as being very comfortable at the grade.

5.7 5.7 R Granuleuse

Simul in one pitch with a few 4-5m belays for cruxes. This climb is great. Much much better than the 'sport 400'. 1h55min ground to top. 51min rappel.

Gear spoiler: we brought single from #0 to #3, doubles from 0.4 to #2, triples from 0.5 to #1 with a full set of stoppers and tricams (2 black, two pink and one red). A standard double rack would be fine if climbing normally. I did place the 0.1 and 0.2 in the first pitch. Stoppers would probably work provided some gardening. #4 or #5 might be usefull if planning on doing the p5 dirty off-width variant.

We started way off route on a friction slab with few protections. PA lead a ~200m simul-block to a tree belay. Not recommended. The pitch had few protections with friction and balance moves up to 5.9 over ~10m runouts. We then proceeded to climb 3 70m pitches to the top, swapping leads. We believe to have been back on route for those pitches. 1h51min for the simul-block, and 1h52min for the remaining three pitches. ~1h for the rappel.

Total time car to car for the three climbs: ~12h30min

5.7 Sport 400

Simul in one pitch. PA onsight-lead the block. 24 draws (30 would be better). 46 mins ground to top. 47 mins for the rappels. Rappel beta: with double 70m 8.4mm ropes, we did a 35m single rope rappel, then 4 full lenght simul-rappels to the ground. Note that the second rappel (first full lenght) we did bypassed the anchor shared with the climb and rope stretch got us exactly to the next anchor. Make sure you understand what that implies if you attempt this method.

Followed Léa with a new climber up this. She stopped at the end of P1 (already a lot of drag) and then climbed P2-P3-P4 in one long 72m pitch. Rapelling P2 with a single 70m rope got us to the slung tree without having to unrope.

5.9 Serpentin

Very nice climb. Should get more traffic. The poison ivy at the base had us bushwhack the ramp left of the climb until we met with the first bolt. Raph linked the two first pitches using a few long draws to manage drag. He built a tree anchor at the beginning of the "Garden" to avoid horrendous drag. I did a 5m short-rope pitch to move the anchor over to the bolts. Then I linked the last two pitches into an enjoyable 40m pitch. We rappelled into "Microgravité" for an extra pitch.

With Raph, he lead the first two pitches as a bloc and I led the last two. He had a lot of drag and a terrible belay stance. We had double ropes and rappelled pitches 2-3-4 in a single rope stretcher to the anchor of P1. We then walked (unroped) to the slung tree and then a single rappel through the trees back to the ground.

5.8 Dora l'exploratrice

Climbed in 5 pitches. Lead all of them. Climbed what is more likely the start of '40 prinptemps' and bypassed a section of the dihedral by climbing clear rock on the right back into the dihedral for the last two pitches. Some loose rocks but not more than should be expected in such adventure terrain. The bushwack took longer than expected, never found the flagged route between 'Les Dalles' and 'Secteur de Droite'. Headlamps were usefull on the way back as well as orientation and terrain navigation skills. Do not under estimate.

First try. One slip two meters into the chinmey. Then linked the chimney but spent way too much energy. Fell repetitively trying to get out of the chimney into the finger crack. Didn't have much energy/time left so I aided the finger crack to the top glue ins. Very nice creative climbing with great protections. Placed two #4, first one was before getting into the chimney and could be substituted for a #2, second was at the end of the chimney and was pretty useful.

Very nice climb with varied styles yet not hard. Start as an OW/chimney style in the diheedral into a nice OW section to finish on a finger crack. #6 could be used if you dont trust old pitons. Alternatively, you can cross right around the pillar to avoid the last bit of the OW section. #5 tipped out. Otherwise, .3-#3 single rack was fine.

5.5 Regular Route (Regular Route Linkup Empress)

This was an unplanned stop on the way to hike in the high peaks, meaning I had little to no preperation/information but an old (1995) guidebook and MP. Side note: please make an offline/downloadable app. Climbed the first pitch of 'Empress' before realising I was completely off route. Made a long traverse back to the correct route and build an anchor after nice 70m pitch at the start of the nice corner/dihedral. My P3 ran from there to the nice fort-like terrase with a nice birch tree as an anchor (directly below the cave variant). Angain due to lack of better information, the topo I had said to "go around the corner" so I did... just not the right one. Instead of going to the right of the cave variant into the normal finish, I climbed the slab (5.7?) in approach shoes trying to stick to wet and dirty granite. Didn't have any protection larger than #3 for the corner so I resorted to slimy/wet undercammed placements and slung chockstones... Not a fun time. Build an anchor 30m further near a deadly looking bath-tub sized flake/boulder, where a second corner must be passed. Aided my way around that corner (would probably be a decent pitch if not wet and protectionless) and escaped back to the normal finish. Exciting! Descent: Used the second rappel option described in the MP comment section and it worked well. Either two short rappels or one full lenght.
