Description 

The Meuse River Valley contains the highest concentration of cragging areas in Belgium.

The rock is limestone. Long standing classic routes tend to be very polished.

Freÿr, Dave, and Marche-les-Dames are the popular spots.

A fantastic amount of rock climbing at all grades.


Getting There 

Located near the cities of Namur and Dinant.

Approaches to the popular crags are fairly short, usually in minutes.
