The Face Nord below Mount Ventoux


This popular north facing sector is home to about 60 or so routes in total with grades ranging from 6a to 8b, with the bulk of the climbing being in the 7b-7c range. Because of its shady ascpect, this is a great crag to go on those warm days in the summer and fall (this cliff usually seeps throughout the spring) Most of the routes tend to be steep face climbs about 25-30 meters in length, there are are a few worthy tufa climbs as well.

Getting There 

From the parking, go across the walking bridge and take the well worn path to the right. It takes about 10 minutes walking to reach the crag.

A fun, thin and crimpy route up a dark colored, high quality, vertical face. Great climbing at the grade. Follow the bolts through a couple thin and powerful cruxes to the anchor. Apparently, this route was originally run out and scary, but had been recently re-bolted for a pleasurable sport climbing experience. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
