Canada Dry

By: Planetmountain
Area: Dauphinè pre-Alps, Group: Vercors pre-Alps, Peak: Presles, Country: France

A sustained, strenuous 12 pitch outing up magnificent rock!

GETTING THERE

From Grenoble there are two alternatives. Either follow signs for the Vercours park through the narrow gorges via Villard De Lans and Choranche. Before Pont en Royans turn right to the village Presles. Alternativley, drive north up the motorway, exit at St. Romans and continue for Pont en Royan and Presles.
Before reaching Presles (65km from Grenoble) leave the car at the penultimate hairpin curve (tiny parking lot). A small path leads down southwards to the left-hand sectors. Alternatively, park the car slightly higher on the side of the road or on the edge of the plateau. (the descent path leads down to here). Access to the more distant sectors (Paroi Rouge & Triangle de Choranche) is either from above via abseils (equipped descent line), or from the road which leads to the Choranche cave.

ACCESS

Having passed the sector Chrysanthemes continue to an oblique ramp (4+). The start is shared with "Nid d’Aigle" in the Sector Fhara kiri.

DESCENT

Follow the path along the top of the cliff easily down leftwards to the road.

GEAR

Superbly equipped pitches and belays.

NOTES

The 7th and 8th pitches both have two A0 sections (in the guide the 8th pitch is mistakenly graded 7b).
