You are a climber and/or yogi and you wish to discover or improve your practice? This course is for you!
In the south of the Drôme department, at the foot of the Mont Ventoux and in the heart of the Baronnies pf Provence, the village of Montbrun-les-Bains offers you an exceptional natural environment to recharge your batteries and refocus on nature.
This course is an opportunity to practice climbing on various sites of the region (which has many ones). All of them are located in bucolic environments and surrounded by beautiful landscapes.
You will mainly climb on the site of Chavoul, located above the river Gour des Oules. This cliff, close to the beautiful village of Montbrun-les-Bains, is very little frequented, recently bolted and offers a rock with a welcome grip. An initiation sector (slab and cracks) and another with more difficult routes (wall with holes, overhangs, dihedral, etc.) allow everyone to find routes at their level and to work on more ambitious objectives.
We will also discover more known sites among the following ones:
- Mévouillon: in a pleasant environment, you will enjoy a surprising and adherent limestone.
- Pelleret: very beautiful rock, magnificent and wild landscape, this site is inescapable.
- Plaisians: pretty cliff situated next to a magnificent clue.
- Ubrieux: at the entrance of the village of Buis-les-Baronnies, you overhang the Ouvèze from beautiful limestone slabs.
- Baume rousse: this site is very famous thanks to its superb routes, its magnificent view and the quality of its rock.
- Aiguille-de-Buis: the effort of the approach walk is quickly rewarded by the superb panoramas and the good rock.
- Baume noire: this quiet cliff offers routes of all levels.
