It is on the plane, returning from South America, after a stay devoted to the exploration of the climbing sites of Patagonia, that inspires me ... an idea! To make a itinerant climbing trip in Europe throughout the summer of 2016 ...
"Travel between mountains and valleys in search of the most beautiful landscapes, the most beautiful peaks, sharing passions and inspirations, aboard our trucks, free as air and free of worries ..."
The idea seduces me and leads me to determine a route ... An optimal route that will combine a logical path with the climatic conditions of the season. It should not be too hot ... it should not be too cold ... the goal is to travel for a period of 3 months revealing the most spectacular climbing spots in Europe. For that ... small check on the bible of the referencing climbing sites: Climbing Away
3 MONTHS THIS IS SHORT!
If you want to take full advantage without having to be oppressed by the watch. You have to make a selection from the only 4000 climbing sites referenced in Europe. The choice is limited by geographical location ... The idea being to leave from my base camp in the south of France: Les Alpilles.
The beginning of the trip is scheduled for mid-June ... so it will be summer, we must flee the heat! The objective is therefore to find freshness at altitude! And that ! We find it in Chamonix !!!
The course is sketched by selecting the most incredible climbing spots in France between the Mediterranean Sea and Chamonix. That promises entertaining the beggining of this Rock Trip
