The third book in the Rockfax's France series covers the extensive and fertile climbing area west of the author's previous guide to Haute Provence. The areas covered largely surround the beautiful Parc National des Cévennes, but also includes crags that are close to the cities of Nimes and Avignon. Some areas have been climbed on for generations; others are still very much in development, all will leave you hungry for more.

Starting in the family-friendly summer holiday destination of the Ardèche, the guide promises a tour of the very best crags in the region. The next stop is in the Gorge du Tarn, a highly acclaimed recent addition to France's portfolio of perfect crags, here you can choose from the never-ending stamina tests in the Tarn, the occasionally traditionally protected multi-pitch adventures of the Jonte, and the various high-quality offerings of the Dourbie. Moving south, we cover Thaurac, for its collection of fine lower grade single and multi-pitch climbs, then pause for some fine 'old school' adventure at Hortus. Moving back East, it's not far before we can pay our respects to Claret, Russan, and Seynes, each with its individual style, breath-taking quality, and lifetime supply of routes. Finally we end our tour at the well-developed crags surrounding Avignon, including the legendary Orgon which covers the range of difficulty from grade 4 to 9.

Presented in the universally-praised Rockfax style, the book gives the reader with clear landscape photos of each crag, never-before-seen close-up photo-topos, and a wealth of action photos taken specifically for the book. Whether you're planning your trip from home, or choosing your next route at the crag, this guide has everything you're looking for.

Includes: Ardeche, Actinadas, Les Branches, Gorge du Tarn, Le Jonte, Le Boffi, Cantobre, Thaurac, Hortus, Claret, Russan, Seynes, Mouries and Orgon.
