ORPIERRE


Orpierre is a convenient and popular destination. With sectors ranging from single pitch to long routes, all well equipped and within walking distance of the campsite, it's no wonder that Orpierre is ever-popular, even if some of the routes are starting to feel more than a little polished. Its location allows climbing on the crags around Buis-les-Baronnies or Cse to be reached, making it either a good place to base yourself to explore a number of areas, or a place to visit for a day if you fancy a change of scenery. The town has a climbing shop, a mini-market, and plenty of gtes.
