Going to the Auvergne in mid September ,staying at Murat ,any info on climbing in the area greatly appreciated ,looking for some crag ,with easy access and easier routes ,old and infirm climber
I organised a Meet last month based on St Nectaire. The crag at Le Rivalet was very close, with masses of good climbing at grades 4 - 6 close to the road. La Roche Tuiliere has multipitch grade 3 as well as harder, with about 15 mins walk-in.
I've got the guidebook, email me if you'd like more info.
Have recently returned from a walking holiday near Murat. Didn't do any climbing unfortunately, but there is a smallish crag near the ski lift station at the col de le tombe de pere,about 30mins drive from Murat, easy access as well. The local syndicat in Murat have a tourist map showing where all the nearby crags are situated.
