Tasting Notes


This is a great set of crags a few km from Ganges, about 50km north of Montpellier and the Med. The area’s main claim to fame is the show cave of Grotte de Demoiselle, and there’s climbing either side of the parking conveniently supplied for this (though accessed by a slightly annoying one-way zigzagging road – be careful not to overshoot!) There are further sectors scattered along the river valley and well over 500 routes. 400 more words
