GORGES DU BLAVET


A deeply-incised gorge with some imposing soaring granite walls and a collection of both single and multi-pitch climbs. Many of the routes here were climbed long ago but some of the better routes have been given a make-over and are worth a visit any itinerant sport climber. There are many more buttresses, walls and towers scattered around the Gorges du Blavet that are well worth exploring. A good path runs along the base and gives a good short walk and a way to get a look around the place.
