  • Further information(s) : Claret is more like an area for winter and spring. It has the advantage of drying quickly after the rain. If Claret's "myth" can impress (physical routes; sometimes confusing climbing; the "hardest 5 in the world"; no "gift route"; run-out bolts; "strange" locals.... ), there are still some nice slabs and the majority of the routes are between 6b+ and 7b+. So with a good guide, you should be able to blow your arms off with a smile:)
