SISTERON


Sisteron is a compact and approachable crag, consisting of one sizeable narrow fin of rock with slabby, sunny routes on one side, and shady steep routes on the other. The rock quality is excellent, though the slabby routes tend to have cleaner rock than the steep ones. As a destination, it's not extensive enough for a base, but makes a good alternative to Cse if you're feeling like having an easy day and can't face the walk-in.
