climbing in Verdon Gorge
Situated inland between Nice and Marseilles,
the river Verdon cuts a deep limestone gorge, 100's metres
high, through the Provence countryside. This area of France
has long been an established as a classic rock climbing area
that offers a wide variety of climbing, with nearly 1000 routes.
Here there is everything from short friendly sports routes,
to big wall rock climbing that are both bolted and with traditional
protection that requires plenty of commitment.
