Annot Summer Trip 2012 - Ferran Guerrero Hervas

 
Annot Summer Trip 2012 - Ferran Guerrero Hervas
 
September 06, 2012 -  Ferran Guerrero Hervas    
 
After a long time of hearing about this area located in the Haute Provenze and playing of Les Gorges du Verdon, we wanted to visit, we had explained everything, "nothing to envy Bleau, great, less people, etc, etc" so as the summer holidays were shorter than normal for the birth of our daughter, we wanted to maximize the days we would spend outside, and we were advised that it was a good place to go with children, and had every reason , allowing you to combine scale and family life both in boulder areas like sport climbing areas.
 
Our little trip lasted 10 days accompanied by Leti, Oscar and the little Guillem, the early days-trip joined Aleix and Josep Malo, which made me frantic pace of climb, climb and climb was of an intensity I loved it, being aware that the day they march this rate would drop, so had to take the last few days but could not or my soul.
 
10 days two were traveling between the round trip taking it easy to go with small, and six climbing since the seventh and said water will not stop for a day of rain, luckily it was the penultimate day, if it does not give me anything.
 
On comparisons, Bleau Bleau is, and Annot is different, it is true that has sectors that could well be as Bleau, as Le Paf le chien, Le Crete, etc, others might well resemble our Querica the Shire, other to alguan Cogul area and even a touch more abrasive the rock or grain Savassona Fussimanya fat as it all depends on the height you have decided to choose the area for climbing higher against the rock quality is more good but in all sectors there is everything, and everyone has their jewelry, I will try to recommend problems, this time there is no video of the trip, each day loaded with all the photo and video equipment but such was the fanaticism for climbing and just enjoy This trip I decided to not record anything and it has.
 
We have done almost everything, galore boulder that was the idea, climbing poquita but enough to stay with a good taste in the mouth and want to come back, and I miss out all Cacharreria for traditional climbing and more each day after skimming the guide, but good as I've decided that will open time for everything.
 
Climbing day 1, Sector Paf le Chien
 
This first day we waited for the arrival of Aleix and Poor so when they came to such heat that the best thing was to go to the river that is in the same camping La Ribiere, spent part of the afternoon there until we decided it was time to go climbing, building I was in a river with millions of cobble stones was time to create another ephemeral work of many I've been doing here there.
 
While the rest slept in the shade of the river and Guillem was dedicated to cross the river and play with their stones I played with mine, here are some photos taken by Leti small work done in a couple of hours were a total of eight sculptures, leaving the water in balance and struggling against the current of the river, until it all came back at night to the place from which it came, caused by a small increase in the flow rate would have been nice to do a timelapse of the entire process.

Our first experience with the escalation of the Sector would Annot Paf Le Chien, the closest thing to Bleau, fully shaded and quite windy, which is great for days when it rained a little and drying is very fast, as you saw all the potential in Annot is unusually large, in the same sectors myriad problems to open, to clean, to climb, left us amazed.
 
Oscar had bothered to watch videos and have a few problems in the spotlight at the end were many who were doing all martespieces all of bouldering.
 
It is a good field to go with young children, but you have to walk about 10 minutes and no more, the blocks are very close together.

This pleasant area we visited about three days, and always enjoying an ideal temperature, someday rub the 10th, you better go punch his blocks well worth it:
 
-Cartondule, a classic problem of the swing, something that I did not like much, this jumping to catch the first dams destroyed lets shoulders, and yet so Aleix and I could string together.
-The choupette magique, for beginners swing tickets
-Bloc No. 751 (sit)
-Triplette Tournate
-Memo No. 760, a plate of Old School.
No 762-Bloc (sit), do not fail to try, a journey on the edge of a roof to get you going in the end
No 765-Bloc
-Mystic
-Paf le chien, a classic among classics, very very good
-Les Loups, Swing over
-Frout-Frout, pretty close to it but there was left, to see if the next visit we are lucky, a five-star block

The nil-du Perche, a bow compressive
No 745-Bloc (sit), a classic balance
 

Climbing day 2, Sector Madness

The pulling gray day dawns to which we are going to fall, so we hurry to go to a place to climb, and we're placing, just have to go and counting curves located on the map and park a little away from the track those is continuous traffic. Arriving at Sector Madness, Aleix and Malo are already rolled and that only, only went up to take some pictures, the enratonada was tremendous until the rain we decided definitively's take.
 
Ideal for access to children, no margins for a penny, the road is flat and the base of the blocks generally good.

Here we were only one day and in general all the problems we found really good, many to note, is very close to the parking lot of comfort there, depends blocks in this sector have a rock type or another and usually the type climbing is quite athletic, blunt and crash on holes except some jewelry.
 
-Bacalaureat, a classic and a good height and good catch
-Bachotage, aesthetic and fantastic climbing
Commun-Tronc, from what I saw, scale and chain in the industry, I found this jewel in the sector, until it fell not stop Aleix both like me and you love what you see, it's worth a problem progresses every move you make.
-Gargouille, nice
She gymnasium (sit), as its name indicates, good for heat and get in line with the area.
No 170-Bloc (sit)
-The Limace (sit), these two problems are good heat and have height which makes it more disfrutona climbing.
-The Ventouse
No 904-Bloc, technical block, if you go by where he plays and not skipping steps, a block made ​​Laia flawlessly as she knows.
 
Climbing day 3, Sector la Cretê

This is one of the most remote and where you have to drive around the track while most of Argenton, good match with Le Ruin sector, but La Crete alone is worth a visit, as in other sectors there are several types of rock changing at a height of 5 meters of altitude, finding a light touch as abrasive as Bleau Fussimanya another.
 
Here we had a perfect day, the views of the sector over the valley are spectacular, and there are all kinds of good blocks from blocks collapsed dam and up plus plates tecnique.

A five star industry, away from everything, go explicitly. not that there blocks close together, but well worth more than one visit, the skin must be managed because this bill can pass a block or another.

Climbing day 4 some sightseeing and Sector Paf le Chien

That would be France without its Boulangerie, could finally make a visit, with our schedule was difficult to find an open trade that was not the supermarket, so after an awakening rain we just had to do a little sightseeing in Annot, medieval city worth a few visits and eating a pizza at the pizza from the town square, they are great eye.
 
We toured the town and you pass the railway skirted as indicated by signs to go sport climbing sectors and a retreat in time to see the day it opened and windy, it was a sign that afternoon three fanatics would Paf le chien sector.
 










 
 

The evening was most enjoyable, Aleix, Malo and I, hand in hand with everything that was put in front, while Oscar, Leti and Laia took it off, so our fingers began to take its toll, and yet well let nuanced things for the next day.
 
Climbing day 5, Sector Paf Le Chien

Each of us chained projects, the girls made ​​it clear his good form Laia was the first to make the version sitting in Memo No. 751, the second day of work I leave it ready soon after was Leti which did the same, closing circles we were going to Aleix and Malo was the last day of climbing and that made all the batteries pusiésemos us, was a session especially those that remember, each made ​​their projects a reality. Something we allow ourselves to be solved, but it was the excuse to come back another time.

Climbing day 6, Sector Place Vendomê

We have left our friends, and now the escalation has slowed a bit, the days begin to be grayer than usual and constantly announces French meteo rain, but are only drizzle, what makes us able to climb in some quarters that this sheltered, and even so the forecast is that sooner or later fall good, and that is constant in all the holidays, but for now we're waging.
 
Oscar wants to visit this area, ideal to go with small block on the right foot, you have to walk soon, the blocks are a bit scattered from each other but they try and climb seem of supreme quality, shame at this point and I without a day of rest begins to notice me that my muscles are sore.

Climbing day 7, Sport climbing and Boulder in Sector Requiem

A bit of climbing, after the previous day, a bit of drizzle in the air to blow our last days of climbing and just expected a good weather window to finalize a project in mind that we still had not found The sylvanade (sit), a classic that still stood, until that afternoon.
 
So I walk in the area of sport climbing, I wear open finger two days ago and is recovering thanks to the magnificent Climb On, lucky him, but even so it has been useless now when I open just squeezing in the first path, the day is thus promises.
 
Personally I like sport climbing here, although there are many ancient roads that have dams chopped (yes, at least they have done with grace, in the time it would) unlike many other areas of sandstone is all equipped with anchors chemicals.
 
The roads are generally good, and there is something for everyone, so we could only do one morning and left me wanting much more, as I have clear that sooner or later will be a matter of managing time well, there is a small guide Annot areas and a couple of surrounding limestone all sectors can go with children, the feet of track are comfortable and do not fall stones here, most places where needles are solitary scale that the only way to reach its summit is climbing
