Dentelles de MontmirailVaucluse, FRANCE
Climbs 650 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces ?
Mainly single or multi-pitch sport routes but there are also a few multi-pitched routes which are graded 'Adventure Terrain' (Trad with the odd bolt or peg).
Currently (1/10/09) the routes to the Left of La Danone on the Ecole Section of Grand Travers are roped off with signs indicating danger of rockfall.
Latest local guide book was released in Spring 2010 detailing newly developed areas on the South side of La Chaine de Gigondas and the North side of La Chaine de Clapis - also extensive development of mainly harder routes around the Cascade area.
For consistency the local guidebook is used for the route grades.
Climbs at this crag
There are 7 Car Parks scattered over the Massif. 4 of them accessible from Gigondas and the others accessible from Lafare.
If you are approaching from Lafare, there is a small rough track which leads to the Col du Cayron. This is the easiest way to get from the main crags on the South side of La Chaine du Clapis to the North side of La Chaine de Gigondas and is easily usable with care.
