Described by Adam Ondra as 'one of the best sport crags in the world' the 'Cry Baby' sector of Rawyl is characteristic of many Swiss sport climbing venues. Tall, imposing and very steep, the limestone buttress commands impressive views of Lac de Tseuzier and its surrounding hills. The climbing is practically unparalleled in the whole of Switzerland and even better for our climbers it stays (mostly) dry in the rain. While Hazel and Emily set their sights on one of the crag's classic 8a routes, Tommy and Alex turn their attention to the long, sustained 8c 'Van de Panique.' Tommy drops the onsight, but Alex, with his flair for fast ascents, steps up eagerly to try the line. Alex Megos Climbs 'Van De Panique' (8c/5.14b) In The Pouring Rain | Epic Climber, Ep. 4

Hey guys, thanks for the comments on the accuracy of the route, I slipped a mistake to our copywriter on the process and you're all right, this isn't Van d'en Haut, but Rawyl as you mention. I'm very sorry for the confusion we might have caused to everyone and we'll double check the topo facts in future! Cheers, Donna Saarentola, Climbing Producer / EpicTV

This is actually not "Van De Panique" and it is not at Van d'en Haut... It is at Rawyl, near Crans-Montana ;) Nice images though!
