Description

This section of the gorge is where most people climb. Easy access to the majority of the climbs, perfect rock amazing scenery and warm sunshine on your back make it the perfect place to spend a week or two.

Most climbs are accessed from the top with one or two rappels, however, there are a few that start down in the bottom of the gorge. While most of the climbs are located below the rim of the gorge followed by the road as you approach the southern section of the area, you can find a few climb above the road.

Take a little time to scope out the areas. A day hiking along the tops of the cliffs will give you a good idea of whats around, as well as the areas that are popular and ones that are less so.

Getting There

To reach the majority of the climbs you must take the D23 driving South East from the village La Palud-sur-Verdon. After about 3.5 km you'll reach the first hairpin bend, which marks the start of the climbing areas along this road.
