Grade Route

Back in the 80s, this slab was hailed as one of the hardest climbs in the world.

In 1986, the climbing scene in France included some of the world's strongest climbers. Marc Le Menestrel established the route but after making several attempts he was unable to redpoint. Only in 1989 did another Frenchman, Didier Raboutou, finally send what would become one of the very first 8b+.

Set by Marc Le Ménestrel, 1986

FA: Didier Raboutou, 1989

Third 8b of the world

FA: Marc Le Menestrel, 1985
