Extract : Near Draguignan, the amazing little village of Châteaudouble dominates the Nartuby Gorges. They are both dark and luminous, both mysterious and pleasant. A region of contrasts, it's impossible to be indifferent. Grey rocks, brown rocks, red rocks : colours invite you to climb. Country of mules, of iron ore, of steep paths, of Sarsaparilla, and above all, a region of cliffs and secret caves where it's fine to climb all year long. Happiness within reach ?|
Comments : This first lively edition deals with both the natural and the human environment. In it you will find several interesting anacdotes about the region and some portraits of local openers : a nice magazine style but which doesn't compromise the practical side of classifications by grade of difficulty and a check list to keep track of your performances.
