Infos & Booking


In the heart of the Cevennes National Park, the Tarn and Jonte gorges offer magnificent ochre-colored dolomite limestone walls. The Jonte and Tarn rivers have carved vertiginous gorges in the plateaus of the Causses, which meet at the village of Le Rozier.

The multi pitch routes of the Jonte gorges take place on beautiful dolomitic towers of a hundred meters, and thus require to be climbed in several successive pitches. The levels of the routes are very varied and can easily be adapted to everyone. At the top of these gorges, you can discover the "Vase de Sèvre" and the "Vase de Chine", amazing rock formations, sculpted by the elements.

This three-day course will allow you to discover these splendid landscapes by climbing on atypical, steep and adherent rock, accompanied by the flights of the griffon vultures.

A tailor-made program will be set up jointly in order to meet the expectations of each participant and to adapt the program to the group's desires.

The level of each participant will be analyzed, to set objectives and choose the most suitable routes, so that everyone can climb at the top and put into practice the different techniques specific to the multi pitch route, while feeling comfortable in his climbing.

The required minimum level is 5c leading.

Don't hesitate to contact me so we can discuss it together.
