St. Léger – La Baleine (France, September 2007)
Saint-Léger is just one of these climbing spots in the south of France for which you would give up your job, leave your friends behind, pack your bags and settle down in this little village… The crag has everything to offer what you have been looking for your entire life as a climber: from 40 meters 7b’s to 60 degrees 8c+ overhangs or beautiful 6b crack climbing. And finally the calm and marvellous nature of the Vallée du Toulourenc are completing the background of a perfect climbing trip! In summmer the North-Face offers perfect climbing conditions and some cool moving on tufas, some crimpy routes and some 35 to 40 meters classics. On cold winterdays however, when water is soaking through the routes of the North-Face, you should take advantage from the huge selection of 5-star (out of 5) routes on the South-Face with hundreds of routes in the 7th and 8th grade.

As you can see, we are really fascinated by this crag. Pierre and Jean-Marc spent a month there in 2007 in February, July and September. Here are some pictures to convince those who remain sceptic And please have a look at our St. Léger video in our video section.
