Climbing in Orpierre
Orpierre - a village dedicated to climbing. Already from the village you can see the imposing walls and peaks. Much is within walking distance of Orpierre. The village offers a campground, bars, grocery stores and even a small climbing store. Only climbing you have to do yourself.
8 different climbing walls with different orientations offer climbers the opportunity to climb in the sun or in the shade, depending on the season.
With the 2020 edition of the climbing guide, you get the current status of the developments on the surrounding walls offered - 683 pitches (as of 2020) are now waiting for diligent repeaters. In the sport climbing area, there are currently 325 single-pitch routes and 55 multi-pitch routes. In the so-called "equipped adventure sectors", a total of 37 long routes with 3 - 7 lengths (max. 170 climbing meters) can be found.
The climbing guide is now trilingual throughout. The introductory information on the region, history, etc. is also available in three languages, which is not the norm by French standards.
The guide is again very clear and descriptive succeeded. Good approach sketches and topos leave no questions. Orientation, access time, slope of the wall and difficulty range of the respective sectors are clearly presented in pictograms. In addition, at the beginning of each chapter there are detailed descriptions of the respective area or sector.
