About the Event
We are heading to Orpierre in the south of France for our autumn hot rock trip. Orpierre is a bit of a climbing mecca with more than enough to go at on the crags above the village to keep you busy for weeks. The campsite is next to the village and within walking distance of the crags so there is no need to even get in the car to go climbing. There is also a via ferrata just outside the village. If the climbing at Orpierre isn't enough for you then Chateauneuf de Chabre and Sisteron are within a 30 minute drive.
This is a self serve meet, i.e. club members group together and make their own travel/accommodation arrangements. We are staying at Camping Les Noyers which is a climber friendly campsite in Orpierre. Book your place directly with the camp, it's only 90 euros for 7 nights camping for a tent and two people. When booking, say you’re with 'The Bowline Climbing Club' and give Sarah Morley's name (this can be done online).
We have a dedicated 'Hot rock 2023' WhatsApp group which you can request to join to find fellow club members to team up with for transport/accommodation.
The core dates for the meet are Saturday 30th September to Sunday 8th October but members may wish to extend there stay to make the most of the area so if you are interested in staying longer reach out and let others know.
