Louis Attaque (P1) + La Ramirole (P2)

This route is made of two parts:

  • the first part is a resistant and physical 8c+, followed by a good rest.
  • the second part is an 8c taking place in the steepest part of the work that will drain your stamina...

Seb has said that this was harder than "Thor's Hammer" which is why he is suggesting 9a+.

An 8c section (the "approach walk") is followed by an almost blank 50° overhanging sequence that gave the route its name ("Adam's rage" because Adam Ondra came to try but could not decipher the beta).

The boulder problem is then followed by an easier 8b .

It took 5 years, on and off, for Seb to free the route. This first ascent comes just a few months after Seb repeated Move (Flatanger), another 9b/+. Checkout the video of his journey to climb this route.

A 60m "king line" on an overhanging prow above 150m of air. Seb bolted the route in 2009, in a bottom up effort that took him three days to complete. Over the following years, Seb regularly came back to try the route but it soon became obvious that its difficulty was out of reach. He finally sent his project in 2008, grading it 9a+ (solid).

This guidebook is the digital, updated, and expanded version of the reference guide ‘Climbing in Verdon – 52 Years and 520 Routes ‘ from 2017. It presents a large selection of routes in the Gorges du Verdon and surrounding cliffs, as well as several nearby sport climbing areas. You will also find numerous recently developed, well-equipped multi-pitch routes at very accessible grades (<6a). Some of them have already become classics. In total, the guidebook presents over 400 multi-pitch routes and 22 single-pitch sectors*. Each route is accurately presented on photos, and details are provided regarding the climbing style, required climbing level, necessary gear, etc. The approaches are well described and supported by panoramic photos and/or maps. In short, Climbing in Verdon 2023 is a comprehensive and reliable tool for climbing in the Gorges!

This guidebook is created voluntarily by Simon Adlinger, Olivier Dobel-Ober, and Pascal Faudou. It is published by the local climbing federation (FFME Alpes de Hautes Provence) and 100% of the profits are used for equipment and maintenance of the cliffs.
