This superb parc is located 5 minutes away from the cliff of the same name, where you’ll find 80 hard sports routes, mainly at 7a and above.
The escarpment of Le Boffi above the Gorges De La Dourbie and overlooking the Millau Bridge is also nearby, providing another 250 sports routes across a wide range of grades; though it’s worth bearing in mind that getting here involves a 40 minute walk.
The best area for climbing, however, is the famous Gorges de la Jonte. Try driving or walking up the valley from Le Rozier and you could get neck strain looking up at the many astonishing lines, where you’ll find over 300 single and multi pitch sport and trad routes of all grades.
