Briancon Climbs

Escalade Haut Val Durance, Queyras - Hautes Alpes: This comprehensive 13th edition guidebook covers the rock climbing in the Durance Valley around the towns of Briancon, Ailefroide, La Vallouise, L'Argentiere-la-bessee and Guillestre. The Durance Valley is located in the Hautes Alps near Grenoble that is sometimes referred to as the Southern Alps or the Ecrins. 

The guidebook describes 11 separate rock climbing areas and 78 major crags ranging from single pitch and multi-pitch sports routes to long classic alpine ascents up to 600m long. The 11 main areas are: the Vallee de la Claree and Vallee Etroite, the Guisane Valley, Briancon, Vallouise, L'Argentiere-La Bessee/ Ailefroide, La Roche de Rame, Freissineres, Tramouillon-Saint Crepin Valley, Guillestre, Queyras and the Embrunais

At the start of each crag, there is information regarding the type of rock, orientation and therefore exposure to the sun, maximum height of the routes, best time of the year to climb and how long the walk-in is from the car. All the routes are illustrated on either full colour photo-topos or topo diagrams with French grades used throughout.
