About 300 climbers from France and several other countries have met in the Gorges du Tarn for a RocTrip. The well renowned climbing area recently benefitted from a global rebolting plan to renew and secure all the climbing anchors.
Of course In the process some new lines have also been set up. This RocTrip celebrates the reopening of the area, the new guide book and the necessary partnership between local authorities, land owners, environmental activists, and the climbing community. Although the site of Gorges du Tarn is climbable all year long by playing from sunny to shady walls, at this time of year, surprising crisp weather conditions are offering great friction. The climbers are able to spend way more time on the rock, than dipping in the river to cool off. In the evening everybody gathers in the sport center of St Rome De Dolan, a beautiful stone wall village overlooking the gorges.
