La Maladière - Noli Me Tangere 7a+

La Maladière - Noli Me Tangere 7a+,  270m

Sustained and and plesant, often very athletique but very enjoyable.
With a surpraising, almost bizarre traverse, could maybe be the best line on the wall, at least one of them
Starting with the obligatory rappel to the base, the struggling fight with the loose trail at the bottom and its ticks
Walk as far as the rock above looks climbable, at the start of the climb there is a perfect belay tree and voilá, you arrive at the climb. 
Pitch 1, the first 6b+

The first pitch, 6b, a very nice focusing pitch that heads out right and gives you what is the mark of the whole route, air!
Technical climbing on Noli me Tangere, 7a+

Second one, a most steepisch pitch at 6b and about 40m technical climbing. remember to enjoy because after that the maraton starts with 6c, 6b, 7a+, 7a+, 7a,7a...oh la la
Specially pitch no. 7 is to remember, but no panic, it is well équipé, even though the roof passage is at the upper end of 7a!?
The climbing is memorable and every pitch is on solid rock, and the route finding is very obvious, just follow the bolts...!

Traversee bizarr, pitch 7

Steep and airy, great climbing

Pitch 4

The whole route has perfect bolts, and you find them where its necessary, look for the s.k plaquettes Suisse.
The route Cobra-cobana starts at the same place but has plaquettes Italién, but Tangere heads of to the right

You need
2x50m rope
12 QD´s
Extra biners and slings for the upper belays, after pitch 5 the bolts are not tied togheter
Désir de l'air...
le Sommet!
