Conglomerate climbing (the french call this 'pudding') with pockets and edges. This is Frances version of Margalef, not quite the same quality and only about 80 or so climbs, but with lots of fun and gymnastic climbing. This north facing area recieves the shade most of the day. There is a fountain for drinking water at the parking and as with most of europe, there are no toilets at and it is difficult to do your buisness at the crag. The town of guillestre is quite small but there are a couple of restaurants and cafés/bars for your pre climbing java or post send beer.

Getting There

One of the best routes at Rue des masques, and certanitly one of the most popular. A steep gymnastic start leads to unrelenting power enduro climbing on small crimps and pockets up a yellowish face. Super fun with a 2 definite cruxes seperated by an OK rest....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
