Ubrieux Drome, FRANCE
Climbs 118 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 413m a.s.l – Faces SW
With a few exceptions, Ubrieux is a crag for those wanting mid-grade routes consisting of technical climbing. The generally-slabby walls naturally offer many different lines up the same piece of rock, and a 6a can easily feel like a 7a if you're as much as a metre off - we've described the easiest lines, and the reader is invited to discover the hard variations at their leisure.
Close roadside parking.

Watch out for rockfall at the Rocher de Tchernobyl-Right section where there are trees growing above the grade 4 routes - helmets are recommended and do not use the ground anchors if you want the chance to get out of the way|

The only good thing about this crag for me is itís a short walk-in and it gets shade till about midday. But if you like undergraded polished routes, it might be OK. On sector Six Symbol the easier routes are uninspiring and shiny. It is unclear which route is which despite the odd almost illegibly-painted name. These donít match R/fax (topo photo is badly-lit so canít see features) or the local topo (almost useless crag diagram). The routes in both guides are seriously undergraded and horribly shiny to boot, though as there has been a lot of rebolting, high first bolt warnings are redundant

Crag has shade in the morning which can be very useful. Squeezed in routes but the rock quality is mostly immaculate. Hard to beat if slab and wall climbing in the low 6's are your thing.

A rather unsatisfying cliff - particulalry the lower half. Far too many routes squeezed in which makes them lose their identity. Further up the slope it's better
