France : Ariege

The Ariège region of Southern France is the compact area where the Ariège River cuts through the Pyrenées on its way from Andorra to the coast. There is a lot of high quality climbing in the area with a superb variety of rock types to go at; from the soaring granite slabs of the Dent d’Orlu, to the steep limestone bulges of Génat. Limestone, granite and gneiss are on offer and routes vary in size from boulder problems to long epics of over 20 pitches. The area has a long and intriguing history and offers plenty to do apart from the climbing, including mountain walking, caving, river rafting, skiing and checking out the many ancient castles. Factor in the year-round climbing, easy access from northern Europe and plenty of high quality accommodation in the area and it is easy to see that the Ariège region has lots to offer. This guidebook covers all the major climbs on the crags covered. It details sport routes and longer mountain trad. There are also sections on mountain walks and other activities.

A recent fire on the hillside has swept up to the crag and on up to the R. The crag itself has escaped and the flames have just jumped the approach path but currently (28/1/15) it would be good policy not to wear white clothes! Vegetation to either side of Dalle du cerisier has been burnt but rock looks OK.

A nice change from granite though it took a bit of getting into. Very steep juggy routes. Found the topo a bit hard to follow initially on the main face - there seem to be more lines marked than there are bolts! Not a crag for a hot day - it was incredibly airless and sweaty.
