Dreams of Verdon (5.12a) – Ghost River Wilderness

Holy shit!! Best multipitch sport climb EVER!! Incredible climbing up immaculate gently overhanging limestone. All bolts. The book says ‘old school’ bolting but I didn’t find it scary – maybe if you ONLY climb sport you might get a little spooked, but the falls are totally safe. No gear required at all. The rappels were terrifying; heavy wind, hard to reach the rap stations due to roofs, etc. Best not to be alone out there in the Ghost (as we were). If something goes wrong on the wall, you’re basically hooped.
