Seasons: Year-round climbing is possible, but you will want a period of settled weather for winter visits. Centres: Namur, Liege, Dinant, plus Luxembourg. Difficulty: Sports grades 4 to 8a. Must See: Relaxed climbing and great chocolate. Freyr is an outstanding climbing centre with a great number of routes.
In Belgium and Luxembourg are cliffs with all the attributes of their southern counterparts: perfect rock, plentiful fixed protection and sublime settings (though some are rather urban), and they have a few extra advantages:

The northerly position and southern aspect of much of the rock means that climbing is possible from early spring well through into late autumn without it ever getting too hot.
There are routes of all grades.
The cliffs are only two to five hours from the channel ports.
The Belgian people are exceptionally friendly and most speak at least some English.

This volume attempts to describe the routes in a very British fashion. There is a descriptive account of all the routes, a star rating for quality, technical grades for individual pitches, and an ''E'' grade for routes up to 6c+. Also included is the Belgian grade for comparison.

All the cliffs described in Belgium are of high quality limestone, whereas those in Luxembourg are of an excellent hard sandstone.
