During it's heyday in the 80's France's Buoux was home to some of the world's hardest climbing routes. It was also one of the most popular, and for good reason: The weather is beautiful, there are 500+ perfectly-pocketed routes, and a bevy of picturesque towns and villages to explore when you're too tired to climb any more.
In recent years the buzz has moved to other crags but Buoux still has its awesome routes just waiting for unweary climbers to take them for granted. Jen Randall makes that mistake and is rewarded with a climbing-related meltdown. Luckily she recovers to explore some of the most classic moderate lines in the area.
