Toby Dunn on Rahan, Fils de Crao (7b+) Baume Rousse © Adrian Berry

Crag features

Baume Rousse has an amazing spread of quality routes across the grade spectrum, and no climber could fail to have at least one good day here. It also has some of the most agreeable bolting you will ever encounter, and the crag is the perfect place to hone single or multi-pitch climbing skills.

While it's mainly south facing, Baume Rousse also offers sun or shade throughout the day, so you can chase the sun in the winter, or the shade when it's hot. The left-hand east-facing wall gets the most shade, and can take a couple of weeks to dry out after rain. 

Approach notes

The crag lies about 2km north of Buis-les-Baronnies. From Buis, follow the D546 north past the Gorge d'Ubrieux, over the bridge, and take a left onto the D108. Follow this for about 2km, (avoiding turning off onto the D108a at a sharp bend) until you're under the crag on the right. There is a parking area on the right. A pair of parallel paths lead up from the climbing sign at the roadside, the left goes to Gauche Facile, the right leads to the Central 'Competition' section, alternatively you may branch off right to get to Droite Initiation.

Sorry to criticise but this list of climbs is all over the place.

La Cigale et la Fourmi and Concombre Masque (63 and 64 here) are actually between A suivre and L'Emile et Une Nuit (9 and 10 here)

Anyone there? I also sent you an email.

And which grades are wrong?
Enty - 27/Sep/12
Which guidebook?

Just a request (and no offence intended), but can you keep the grades as to what they are in the guidebooks, not the opinion of the moderator.

Hi Enty Finished doing the Christmas lights back all over Blighty? Bout time you changed the grades of "Rigpa..." and "Les Secrets..." at Baumme Rousse both to 8a: no-way are they both 7c+! Cheers and all the best to all 3 of you, Mike.
