About Hortus:

Here the first french Vsup was opened in 1947 : today, the route Fraissinet is rated 6a (5.10a)... This wonderful limestone cliff is facing the Pic Saint-Loup (on which you can climb trad and/or aid) and offers many sport or sport+trad routes, with exposure. Here, you will find aid climbing routes too.
A 90 meter rope should be necessary here.
