FAQs: Rock Climbing in Briançon

What should I know about Rock Climbing Briançon?

Located on a plateau that rises more than 1.300 meters above sea level, Briançon is the highest city in France and a great jumping off point for all kinds of outdoor adventures. It is located at the confluence of the Durance and Guisane rivers and has excellent access to various different climbing terrains. Both the Ecrins and Hautes-Alpes are easily accessible, providing prospective climbers with more single and multi-pitch ascents than you could fit into a single itinerary. In addition to rock climbing, the area is also a popular spot for kayaking and cycling during the summer as well as skiing and ice climbing during the winter.
