Barre de l'Escalès

Climbs ? – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1051m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
The most famous of the Verdon crags with with numerous sectors giving long, serious multi-pitch climbing (up to 400m) as well as shorter routes approached from above.

Excellent quality rock giving amazing routes following cracks and corners or on the blank walls between, with a huge amount of exposure.

Some of the easier routes require sections of aid climbing and trad gear will often be needed. Also some pure aid routes up to A5.

Most will find the grades here fairly stiff so be prepared to drop a few grades.

Approach is usually from above by abseil or by walking along the bottom of the gorge (Sentier Martel) for the longer routes.
