Depends. How long are you at the Verdon, and will you climb anywhere else? The Cote d'Azur guide from Rockfax has a pretty good Verdon section that served us well. It covers climbing from La Tourbie to the Calanques, so is limited by the wide scope, but it is accurate, detailed, and will get you around the Verdon and to the classics. You can also pick up a La Bouche miniguide at the Pericot Vert in La Palud. La Bouche is a great single pitch cragging area on the North side of the Gorge, and is well worth checking out.

If you plan on spending more than a couple of weeks at the Verdon, and not go anywhere else, I'd say find a dedicated Verdon book.

Get the newest one dedicated to Verdon if you're going to be there long. I think there is only one option other than the older version. But the new one was preferred when I was there this past summer. They sold it in a couple stores there. its nice, colored, detailed, but in french.

I didn't buy one cuz there were a bunch at camp I was able to use.
