Just back from a few days working for a friend in the Verdon Gorge. I'd never been to the Verdon before and was even more impressed than I expected to be. Beautiful plum vertical limestone with insane exposure and brilliant technical face climbing. I was working as an extra hand doing general rigging jobs on a catalogue photoshoot. But i did manage to sneak in one route for myself, between jugging up lines and being shouted at by Mr boss.

Sneaking in a route just before dark.
I must be almost the only person who didn't nip up the Eiger last week. But hey, work takes priority......sometimes.
