This comprehensive guidebook describes all the single pitch sport routes on the island of Corsica. There are also some multi-pitch sport routes at places such as Gorges de la Restonica near Corti and Col de la Tana in the Taravu valley near Aiacciu. Also included is the bouldering at Valdu di Saltu in the Taravu valley.

The guidebook is split into 7 main sections that are; Bastia in the northeast; Balagne in the northwest; Portu in the west, Central Corsica that includes Gorges de la Restonica; Aiacciu in the west that includes the red granite at Gozzi; Taravu in the southwest, and the Grand Sud area in the southeast of the island that includes Bavella. In total 64 separate crags are covered and over 2,000 routes are detailed across a wide range of grades.

At the start of each crag there is a clear location map along with the GPS co-ordinates for the car parking areas. There is also a brief description of the style of climbing to be found, along with symbols indicating approach time, crag orientation, type of rock, and the maximum length of rope required. All the routes are shown on colour photo topos along with French grades.
