The limestone cliffbands of St. Léger du Ventoux make up the excellent, not to be missed, climbing destination near the village of Saint Léger du Ventoux in south eastern region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. The generally north/south facing walls rest in a quaint, quiet valley at the base of the immense massif of Mount Ventoux (1911m/6269ft). There are plenty of routes with a great variety of climbing. The limestone here isn't as compact as other neighboring climbing areas and the climbing here is reminiscent of the 'new school' style (without the soft grades) one would normally expect to find in Spain. There is not much for food shopping in the area, but there is an excellent bakery in the next village over. There is 'free' camping(bivy spot/not technically legal) near the village as well as several gites to stay in. There is a great fountain to fill up on water in the village of Saint Léger du Ventoux as well as a super nice and clean bathroom next to the fountain for that after coffee/pre-climb movement.
