Is that still banned or OK now? Went for a look there when at buoux a while ago. What a crag.

Climbing at Lourmarin has been banned since 1999 and is still banned. Purportedly for "bird protection". Climbing there, you risk a heavy fine.

OTOH Playboy Rode sans Complexe was put up in 2015. Etc.

Still, probably best not to shout about it on Instagram though!

Such a shame it's banned. After a week of getting spanked at buoux we were drooling at the sight of steep climbing with decent holds

Isn't that why people go climbing nowadays?

Mayby second ascent to "No Kpote Only" wasn't a mistake or luck at all...

"ryohei_kame: Today, I send "La Révolutionnaire" (8c+/v16 ) ! 2nd ascent. I'm really happy!"

The 9A grade seems to have been a mistake, non?

In slightly less significant news, Gonzalo Larrocha just did the 26th recorded ascent of La Ramla. La Ramla is his second 9a+. (https://www.instagram.com/p/BvEHQYxl9AU/)

and jens knows la rambla should be 9a, but for grade inflation

edited to reflect jens' statement better

It's a shambles.
