Description

This is a comprehensive guidebook covering the rock climbing in the Durance Valley around the towns of Briancon, Ailefroide, La Vallouise, L'Argentiere-la-bessee and Guillestre. The Durance Valley is located in the Hautes Alps near Grenoble that is sometimes referred to as the Southern Alps or the Ecrins.

The guidebook describes 11 separate rock climbing areas and 81 major crags ranging from single pitch and multi-pitch sports routes to long classic alpine ascents up to 600m long. The 11 main areas are Vallee de la Claree et Vallee Etroite, Vallee de la Guisane, Briancon, Vallouise, L'Argentiere - La Bessee
La Roche de Rame, Freissinieres, Valle de Tramouillon - Saint Crepin, Guillestre, Queyras, and Embrunais.

At the start of each crag, there is information regarding the type of rock, orientation and therefore exposure to the sun, maximum height of the routes, best time of the year to climb and how long the walk-in is from the car. All the routes are illustrated on either full colour photo-topos or topo diagrams with French grades used throughout.

Re-published in 2015 this guidebook is in French and English text throughout.

Number of pages is 344.
Format 150mm x 210mm (A5)
