/ Escaping the UK weather
Anyway, just booked tunnel to escape to France and, hopefully, better weather.
Possibly might go to the Verdon, but could be a bit hot. If it's not the Verdon, then a sport week somewhere.
Any recommendations? Never been to Gorge du Tarn, any good? Anywhere else SW France, near the Pyrenees?
It's 36 here today but with a few thunder storms forecast temperatures are supposed to fall to the high 20's next week.
Tarn could be good - plenty of shady crags.
Plenty of shady crags here actually.
Thanks, sounds good. Better than the weather here.
We are thinking the same...
Any idea how dry/hot it is Balme de Yenne?
No idea what condition the crag is in - I've never been anyway.
Weather for Aix les Bains area next week though looks like low to mid 20's with thunder storms Tuesday and Wednesday.
Not SW but what about Ceuse?
Cheers for the info. Did read about that but thought they may have finished the rebolting.
Thanks, really good website.
