Roche Gallet climbing spot

Among the three dams which follow one another on the Creuse between Jouillat and Bourg d´Hem, that of Chézelles has remained the wildest. It shelters in particular the otter and the peregrine falcon.

General presentation of the Spot

You can cross the lake by taking the hiking trail that runs along the right bank to the village of Jupille and leads to the rock.

It is a group of rocks that plunge directly into the waters of the dam on the Creuse. A large set of gateways leads from one end to the other.

Access and parking:

Rocks located in the town of Bourg d´Hem with access from the village of Jupille in the town of Anzème. From Guéret (15min) take the D33 towards Anzême, pass Anzême, then towards Le Bourg d´Hem via the D33, then Jupille. Approximately 10-15 minutes walk from the parking lot. When parking, be careful not to disturb the residents. From Jupille, a path descends to the gorges (to the west) where the cliffs dominate the Creuse, a footbridge over the EDF lake provides access to the cliff.
