GORG BLAU


Set high up in the mountains on the long and winding Ma-10 north coast road, Gorg Blau is best considered as a warm weather venue to escape from the heat. The gorge itself is a a narrowing valley lined with black and red-streaked limestone cliffs on each side. Most of the routes consist of long, vertical or slightly overhanging pitches, sometimes following tufas and almost always on excellent-quality rock. There are a few easier routes, but in reality Gorg Blau is only of any real interest to those operating at 6b and above.
