ROCHER SAINT JULIEN

Another wow factor cliff that makes you click on the availability of the cheap flights to Nimes or Marseille. Another huge fin of limestone, and some excellent quality rock to be found on it.

We include this large cliff in our guide, but only offer a taster of routes on it since the local climbers are re-bolting it, and publish a local guidebook for it. Since you need to carry the booklet with you - it seems that this way provides the best solution to finding your way around it.

The cliff does have its fair share of accidents, which are often fatal, because it is so high and there is no second chance when you get into trouble here. It is a cliff where helmets are advised and good knowledge of multi-pitch climbing techniques are essential.

There are local climbing guides, both English and French who are well worth employing if you are not used to larger cliffs, A CLICK on the links or a search on the internet should soon find these for you.
