The Pyrenees Rock guidebook describes the sport climbing and bouldering in The Pyrenees, covering both the Spanish and French sides of the border. 13 different crags are described with over 2,200 individual routes detailed across a broad range of grades. All the sport climbing is on limestone rock, which is generally very good and well bolted. Some of the major Spanish crags detailed in the guidebook include Montgrony, Cavallers, Les Bruixes, and Rodellar. On the French side the extensive granite bouldering area of Targasonne includes over 400 problems. These granite boulders offer a good range of routes across all grades and are generally between 3 and 4m tall.
At the start of each crag there is a description of how to reach the crag, plus further information of the type & style of climbing available, the best time of the year to visit, accommodation and how children friendly the crag is. All the routes are shown of good clear topo diagrams along with their length and grade, with French grades being used throughout the guidebook.
Published in summer 2008 this guidebook is in German and English text throughout. At the moment this is the only guidebook available covering the bouldering at Targasonne.
