The rocher Saint Julien :

Overlooking our place, the classicroutes of this well-known climbing site on the south face, climbed and equipped between 1964 and 1969, have been re-equipped since then. Along with the modern routes, generally more difficult, represent a grade panel from 4a to 8a+, from 20 to 120m long and total more than one hundred routes. Facing due south, they are perfectly protected from Mistral and allow to practise climbing throughout the year with a very beautiful autumn.

At the very heart of the heavy summer heats, you can move towards the fifteen routes on the north face. Some routes, equipped in 2000, are initiation sectors.

An access road has been built for the emergency services with a base for helicopters. Possibility to park the car at our place with views from the rock. There is quick access way from the car pak.

A fireplace on the north face allow hikers to access to the crest of the rocher/mountain, from where you have a panoramic view of the pre-Alpes, and the olive groves of Buis les Baronnies and La Roche sur le Buis.
