Description

Topo : Claret, 2010. 64 pages. 18€

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.

  • With kids: Very good with kids. The approach isn't to steep and the base of the wall has lots of space for the kids to play. Small children who just learned to walk could have some issues, but even for them there are some good areas.

Access issues inherited from France

As of 2020, some privately owned climbing areas may have restricted access. Check with https://www.ffme.fr/

Approach

Park the car at the side of the road (43.8703, 3.8688). From there follow the path to the north, which leads to the crag.

Ethic inherited from France

Park where indicated, take care of the environment, buy the local guidebook when possible (this is one of the ways you can help local route setters), clean up your shoes before climbing, don't spray beta, be polite.

Check https://www.gouvernement.fr/en/coronavirus-covid-19 for COVID-19 restrictions currently in place.
