Le polichinelle dans le tiroir – Tete d’Aval

A few pictures of a cold but satisfying day on the Tete d’Aval climbing the route ‘Le polichinelle dans le tiroir‘ (7a max, 350m) with Niels. Openend by J.M. Cambon and his friends in the early eighties. We found the majority of the pitches quite tough for the grade!!

Super nice that Jeroen & Line climbed a route next to us, the infamous ‘Pillier Rouge Hebdo‘.

Walking up (appr. 1h30m) to the start of the route.

2nd pitch (6b+ traverse and a small roof)
3rd pitch (6c)
The 7a that is shared with Ranxerox (L8). Still no chance to free this pitch, its much harder than 7a imo!
Me in L12 (7a) which was fun and super technical
Jeroen rappeling while we were still climbing up.
On top!
