You must plan
Apéro and dinner :
it's possible to order food in the village
From 14 years old, the one night option doesn't require any climbing ability, you just need to be ok with the height.
Please contact us for the price. It's also possible to rent a portaledge for 70€/night.
The "one night" option :
We will rig the portaledge under the edge of the Escales, Verdon most impressive cliff. We'll have diner on a ledge and then set up for the night. In the morning we'll enjoy the sunset over the Gorges with a fully exposed breakfast. A short rope ascent will get you back on your feet. We can also continue with the Cataractes course on the next day, a beautiful, exposed and demanding course across the cliff.
The multipitch+night option
In a climber's life, a night spent cliffside is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We'll choose the best route according to your comfort zone (5c-6a top rope is a minimum required) We'll abseil down in the afternoon and then climb the 1st half of the route. Once at the bivvy place we'll rig the portaledge and share diner. The day after we'll climb to the top to finish around noon. We also offer aid climbing with overnight stay.
