Last fall, I’ve equipped 15 new routes in the sector of Saint-Photis.
With Aris Theodoropoulos we re-equiped this week the last routes that needed to be secured, so it makes the all sector a really good new area to discover.
The place is very quiet, the view is unbelievable, plus, it has shade until 2.30pm in the cave and 3pm to the right.
The grades might be a bit harder or easier, since only few climbers repeated them. Alexander Megos has done the FA of all the hardest routes, with really humid conditions and generally one or 2 tries, and of course very easily, bravo Alex…!-) )
From the left to the right
-Anarixnissi 6c+: A nice slab climbing
