Climbing spot for heros

The equippment at Creux du Van is old and the rock is either very bad or very smooth. There are some adventures, not yet free climbed aid routes of the 70ies leading through overhangs and huge roofs. The Creux du Van is located within a protected landscape and so climbing is only allowed from 1st of august to 31th of december. The access to the wall takes more than an hour and also the walk down after the climb takes quite a long time. Therefore, Creux du Van is not visited very often.
