There are two indoor climbing gyms in Terres-de-Meuse: at Life Style Fitness in Huy and at the hall in Wanze. Our region also boasts a number of outdoor spots, with fine rock for both experienced and novice climbers. We have identified at least seven, mainly in the Condroz region. There are others that are, for the most part, forbidden to climb or rarely visited.
1. Le Porche de Roiseux, in Modave
Located in a quiet spot on the edge of a wood on the left bank of the Hoyoux, the crag is around twenty meters high and has a good dozen relatively difficult routes. The climbing here is athletic and sustained.
2. Rocher de Régissa (poudingue), Modave
One of the largest expanses of poudingue rock in Wallonia. Climbing here is no more difficult than on limestone-type crags, but the style is, on the other hand, quite different: “The rock is made up of small pebbles that are cemented on top of each other,” says CAB crag manager Joe Dewez, “The feeling is different when you climb.” The site is aimed at medium-level climbers and hosts some sixty routes. Height: up to 25 metres.
