Here is the video of a multi-pitch outing on the Petite Aiguille d'Ansabère in the Pyrenees.
Located in the Lescuns valley, the route is semi-equipped but large sections must be protected with nuts. The length is 300m for a maximum difficulty of 7a. Note the presence of a de-escalation/pendulum in a not very popular place which must be anticipated by the second! In short, a magnificent route, with character, in a superb and uncrowded location.

“Hey, psssst, get up, gotta go! my buddy Max whispers to me, trying not to wake the other people in the dorm. Talk about it, I barely slept all night and I was ready to take off in less than 10 seconds. All things are ready, I lace up my shoes, swallow a biscuit and I follow the silhouette of my companion in this clear and promising night.

Here is the video of a unique canyon outing on Reunion Island: Colonoscopy V4A2VI
The initial objective was to do the Ravine Blanche waterfall but the unpredictable and capricious weather pushed us to change our plans to embark on Colonoscopie. The most memorable thing about this day is certainly the strenuous approach in the tropical jungle. Fortunately, I was well accompanied by Clem and Aurel who already knew the place!

There are still stars in my eyes thinking back to that fall day. The kind of day that Haute-Savoie sometimes offers us in October, you just have to know how to seize it. Last year I took the opportunity to spend a beautiful day at altitude in Digital Crack. This year, the Fiz are dry and still taunt me with its high walls. 3 years that I want to visit the wall of Anterne, since I live at the foot.

In the semi-darkness of a mountain path lit by the stars of the southern hemisphere, three small loupiotes slowly hoist themselves onto the roof of the Indian Ocean.

First weekend as a team in a select committee: Antoine, Gabriel, Arnaud and me. We decide on Autridge, the beautiful cliff perched above the Ardèche gorges. No one knows except Antoine. For him it's a bit like his garden. Our local has done almost all the routes and sends us his desire…
