Claret, it is at first the brilliant placethe beautiful cliff due south that overhangs the vineyards of a magic valley. It is also a hallucinating, very different climbing for whom this type of limestone has never seen. The rock is indeed very broken, to the point that at the beginning we wonder if it is really solid. And the body movements are very disturbing, with grips rarely directed as we would want, very continuous ways often déversantes with miserable step of blocks in the takeoff. Major. If the easy levels are little represented (on 150 ways, about ten 5-6a, about fifty in 6 and the rest of 7a in 8c ++), the equipment concrete although sometimes spaced out allows to indulge itself at (almost) all the levels.

From Montpelier, direction Quissac then Claret, then the cliff (park in border of road). Easy.
