The 3 best crags in the Hautes Alpes

My top-3 crags in the Hautes Alpes : 1) Céüse 2) La Saume 3) Rif d’Oriol. All 3 blessed with very aesthetic rock, offering the best sportclimbing on the planet..

But……when I am writing this, I forget there’s another small crag that needs to be mentioned. Ailefroide sector Face Bouc (Punishman Park 7c, world class!).. so that’s my number 4 😉

Some pictures of September ’19:
