LE BOFFI


When you consider how much quality rock there is next to the road in the nearby Gorge du Tarn, to be worth the thirty minute approach walk, the quality of climbing at Le Boffi would have to be nothing short of fantastic - fortunately, it is! Catering mostly for climbers operating in the mid 6s upwards, there is a huge amount to go at, and a visit is highly recommended even if you're not a big fan of walking. It is worth noting that there are some very long pitches at Le Boffi, and your experience of climbing here will be enhanced by bringing an 80m rope.
