About Orpierre:

Orpierre lies in an area called Haute-Provence and has a very dry climate. As it lies quite high it can become quite cold during the night in spring. So bring a good sleeping bag. In summer it is quite hot there. It is a good area for beginners.
The tracks to the routes are all marked. Most of the routes are completely bolted. For the sections Quiquillon and Adrech bring a double 90m rope. For all other sections, a 60m single rope should suffice.

Nearest town or city: Gap
From the south: Take the route nationale from Aix en Provence to Sisteron. From there drive to Laragne. Then take the road to Orpierre.
From the north: Drive from Grenoble to Gap, then Laragne and finally to Orpierre.
