Location
Pyrenean foothills, SW France

Best Climbing Experience
Granite ! Cavallers and Neouvielle are the biz.

Best experiences are usually the most recent - keep your escapism current!

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Onsight - Rawsight : to climb onsight without grade or topo. For the majority - climbing is pre-researched, and very safe if bolted. Look out for those (rare) opportunities to boost your adventure !
