This guidebook by Rockfax describes some of the popular sports climbing areas in the Haute Provence region of France. This is the area to the east of Avignon and south of Gap in southern France.

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. All this makes the usual high quality guidebook that is now expected of Rockfax with lots of excellent action photographs.
