Verdon Gorge: new multi-pitch by Dutel and Potard

25.11.2013 by Planetmountain

In October Olivier Dutel and Nicolas Potard made the first ascent of La Fiesta de los Metallos, Gorges du Verdon, France.

The Verdon Gorge is a gift that keeps on giving. This October, on it's Rive Gauche, Frenchmen Olivier Dutel and Nicolas Potard established a difficult multi-pitch called La Fiesta de los Metallos. The new route takes a 210m line to the right of Electoraux chocs and was bolted from above. It is described by the duo as a "must climb" in the Gorge but, with difficulties up to 8b, is no doubt something reserved to a select few. The first free ascent was carried out by Potard together with Martina Cufar.
