This guidebook by Rockfax describes some of the popular sports climbing areas in the Cote d’Azur region of France. This area is the southern coast of France between Marseille and Monaco near the Italian border. In total 10 major sport climbing areas are described with over 2,700 routes across a wide range of grades. The areas covered by the Cote d’Azur sport climbing guidebook are the Verdon Gorge, Sainte Victoire (near Aix en Provence), Les Calanques (near Marseille), Toulon area, Chateavert (Rochers de Bagaredes), Chateaudouble, Massif del’Esterel (near Frejus), Gorges du Loup (near Frejus), Saint-Jeannet (near Nice), and around the Monaco area.
At the start of each crag there is a location map, and a good description giving a general overview of the crag and type of rock climbing to be found there. All the routes are illustrated on full colour photographs, topo style, with French grades.
Published in December 2010 by Rockfax the guidebook is in English text throughout.
