Within 15 minutes there are over 10 fantastic limestone, granite and gneiss climbing sites ranging from single pitch gems and bouldering to 350m big wall extravaganzas. A further 20 minutes gets you to the Dent d’Orlu, home to 800m fully-equipped routes up to 31 pitches! Climbing topos, maps, MTB circuit plans and walking guides are available on site as well as a bouldering wall for guests and the hire of mountain bikes, snowshoes, crash pads and clip sticks. Low crags are climbable in the sun on most winter days in a tee shirt and in summer perfect conditions can usually be found high on mountain crags or in the steep-sided valley crags of Niaux, where it is always possible to find shade.
We can cater for groups and clubs as well as families and can offer outdoor activities. If there is a special occasion you have in mind we are full of ideas for fun things to do.
