The race is divided into several characteristic parts:
1st part: North face of the Rochers du Varo (D+ = 300m)
This is the rocky part of the itinerary which takes place in the northern bastion, the climbing is done on good rock in 5b max.
2nd part: Classic North Ridge to the Col du Varo (D+ = 240m)
The great classic that everyone does, this is the classic initiation climb with a great view on the Annecy's lake and the Mont Blanc's massif.
3rd part: West face of Rochers des Tours (D+ = 80m)
A few pitches of old-fashioned climbing, where you will have to sweep the chimneys as sir Louis Lachenal did.
4th part: Descent of the North-East ridge of the Rochers des Tours (D- = 380m)
Gas atmosphere and chamois balancing on a ridge that is not always very compact... but this is undoubtedly the wildest part of the route!
5th part: La Tour Sans Nom (D+/D- = 20m/60m)
The breathtaking finish on this isolated tower which holds many surprises!
A piece of advice: plan the bivouac
If you want to do this race, you should be well trained because the course is long and suggests a bivouac at the end of the first day. As for the race, it requires climbing skills (5b max) rather than mountaineering skills, but whatever the case, you must go ahead!
