/ Somewhere to climb in Coux-et-Bigaroque, Dordogne, France
This is close by if you have a car/bike:
Thanks Tris, I have already found this any a few other crags which I am very pleased about. Also I have found some via ferrata in a place called Marqueyssac which I have never done before.
Thanks for your reply.
Cool - have a great time, it's a beautiful area.
We stayed in Miramont-de-Guyenne last year, found plenty of climbing around (30 mins to an hour away). Climbing guide Escalade en Perigord is good (in French but clear) covers area around you - mostly to the North. I contacted the author to get a copy as its not available in the UK. ISBN 978-2-35669-037-1. Should be available in the area, author Matthieu Mercier. If you can't get hold of it before you go pm me and I'll lend you it. Merry Christmas.
That's very kind thanks. Im not going until next year so im sure I will be ok. Although I can't seem to find how to contact the author of the guide book. Would you still remember the contact details you used?
From what I can remember I emailed the French Climbing Association - they contacted Matthieu on my behalf! I'm sure he told me they are available in the tourist information offices in the area. There is also a Decathlon in Bergerac that has a climbing gear section - that could be a starting point.
Whilst we were there we climbed near a village called Bayac, and another called Gavaudun. All sport as you would expect, very well maintained bolts etc.
Milhac is very good too. http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=12143
