GORGE DE LA JONTE


The Jonte is not a particularly well-known area, climbers visiting the Gorge du Tarn just up the road are often entirely unaware of its existence, which is surprising, when you consider it has a much longer climbing history. The Jonte is home to an astounding number of superb routes, following a mixture of strong natural lines and stark faces, reaching about 150m in height. While not exactly big-wall climbs, they provide a great deal of atmosphere and exposure.
