Description

Rural France, a quiet valley with a bunch of limestone blocks. Some are short, overgrown boulder problems, some are up to 18m. Lots of bolts, old rusty ring bolts, and some newer replacements (ring bolts as well.)
Probably all sport routes, there may a place to plug some gear, but pretty unlikely. Nice range of difficulty, from really easy to really hard.
Best thing, quiet, no crowds, shade available when needed, sun available when needed.
Worst thing, no star ratings, sometimes the route that looks amazing in the guide, is barely worth roping up for.

Getting There

Go to Angoulême, find the tourism office. They sell a guidebook for 13 Euros (as of 7/3/16). Its worth your $ to save the time.
If you're poor, its South of Puymoyen. Drive into Puymoyen from the West, turn South at some point, and look for signs for Eaux Claire. Park, Climb.
The approach is very easy. Walk down a road (flat) until you find your area. The furthest is probably 1.5 miles down the road, the closest is ... open car door, climb.
