The small village of Vergisson. In the upper left ...


This impressive crag sits above the small village of Vergisson and across the valley from nearby Solutré. The routes here are typically pretty sustained and can be up to 25m tall.
Due to its position at a very southerly point in Bourgogne and southerly and fully exposed aspect, it can become downright hot here some days. Nonetheless, the climbing is great and the rock isn't as polished as more northerly crags.

Getting There 

Locate the small village of Vergisson directly west of Macon and just west of Davayé. Solutré garners a little more attention, so if you don't see a sign right away, you can also head towards Solutré because Vergisson neighbors Solutré. From the center of Vergisson, travel north towards Pierreclos and right at the end of the village you'll see a road turn sharply off to your right and head up to the crag. There is an obvious large parking area right next to the trail which leads up to the crag. The GPS coordinates point to this parking area.

This very cool chimney route uses the bolt line on the left side and starts easy and well protected and gets progressively more difficult and scary. At the end you can come around to the right to an anchor which is close to the bolt line and inside the Tube, or finish out an overhang to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
