Description

A newer sector (bolted around 2005) of Orpierre, this exposed south-easterly facing cliff is a good place to climb in the colder months. It is possible to climb here in the warmer months, but recieves shade late in the day. There are about a dozen steep, quality lines here, with the grades ranging fron 6c-8b+, making this a good place for upper level climbers. The yellowish limestone here is not as compact as the other sectors at orpierre, so the routes might not be as clean as others in the area--but don't let this deter you, this is a fun place to climb. On a busy day there might be a couple other parties at the cliff, but it is usually rather quiet. Most climbs are 30 meter plus length, so a 70 meter rope is mandatory for all but a couple climbs and a 80 meter rope is mandatory for the not to be missed line of 'trop pure' (7c/12d). Also, one or two of the extensions require an 80m cord as well.

Getting There

About 1 km before town (on the east) there is a righthand turn with marked with a sign sign 'parking l'Adrech' follow this small road as it zig-zags up the hill and eventually turns to dirt. After about 1 or 2km of dirt you will arrive at the parking at the end of the road. Park and take the well marked trail up the hill towards 'l'Adrech' and the 'paroi jaune'. The paroi jaune is the obvious yellow face at the and of the trail. About 20 minutes walking.
