The Villes-sur-Auzon Climbing site
This remarkable site is situated less than 500 metres from the village in a small, picturesque valley. It is open to all, beginners and experienced climbers alike.
To go there, take the D1 road that leads to the Nesque gorge and to Monieux.. In a bend there is a shady car park on the right from which a path leads to the different cliffs.
There are in all 83 climbing routes (graded from 4c to 8a) in two different areas, the “Jardins de Villes” facing south, and the “Balcons de Villes” facing south-east, both created by the Comité Territorial de Vaucluse and the Fédération Française de la Montagne et de l’Escalade (CT84FFME) for the benefit of all climbers.
This new site received particular attention towards the conservation of local fauna and flora
For your comfort dry toilets and three picnic tables are at your disposal near the cliffs.
A climbing guidebook of the routes can be bought for 10 € at the village newsagent and tobacconist’s shop in the village, or in the tourist offices in Villes-sur-Auzon, Monieux and sault..
