ECI 38 trust us again! After the digital guide of the désert de l'écureuil, it's now the turn of Saint-Paul de Varces to see the day on our digital platforms!
A very long cliff, not easy to take in picture because of trees at the foot of the routes; a meticulous work between artist graphic designer and hard-working bolters, meticulous and careful to the smallest details.
A first visit of Hervé Rondeau in 2000 is limited (scared by hunters squatting the bottom of the crag) to the equipment of two routes in a very high area ... to be continued.
Under the initiative of Philippe Peyre and Philippe Gay, St Paul finally removed from anonymity in 2003 with few routes in the Sex St Paul and St Paul Spot sectors.
In 2010, back to business: Thierry Bienvenu invited many ECI bolters to banquets, including the "trainee", "Yush" and the return of the "wolf" ... (See History Genesis St -Paul on www.eci38.fr).
This period sees the extension of the sector Second couteaux and the opening of Tous bourrins, Polenta, Vire du Silence, Conquête d'épaule and Stagiaire.
In 5 years the number of routes goes from 10 to more than 80! A nice example of collective equipment.
Today, the guide made by all this small world and published on our ClimbingAway apps proposes a great variety of routes.
The level remains quite demanding with more than 40 routes in the 7th degre, but the climber of 6th will find his happiness with as many routes. There will also be two 8a and 4 "unrealized" routes ... And a few more projects!
As usual, by buying a ClimbingAway digital guide, you contribute to the maintenance and development of the crags. Much of the revenue going back into the local economy through ECI 38.
So do not hesitate, at € 3.49 the guide, there is no comparison!
