Climb all the best routes here, then you can retire! The quality here is so overwhelming it's hard to appreciate individual routes when they are all so good. Bolts can be quite spaced. The slabby lower grade routes at the right hand aren't giveaways!

Cette dernière édition présente l’intégralité des voies de la falaise : 900 longueurs réparties sur 37 secteurs et sous-secteurs. Chacun faisant l’objet d’une photo et de tracés clairs. Les différentes approches sont décrites précisément et s’appuient sur des photos panoramiques. Cette falaise qui accompagne depuis 25 ans l’escalade mondiale de haut niveau est surtout connue pour ses voies difficiles à extrêmes. Mais aujourd’hui Céüse n’est plus réservée à l’élite car plusieurs secteurs récemment rééquipés permettent à tous de profiter de cette paroi d’exception.

L’auteur de ce topo, Laurent Girousse, est l’un des principaux équipeurs et ré-équipeurs des falaises autour de Gap.
