Cardou

Climbs 54 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
About 50 routes, mainly in low to middle grades, on excellent limestone. Routes vary from single pitch to five pitches.

Nesting restrictions 1 Feb - 15 June in sectors La Dalle and Le Petit Cirque.

Access notes
Approach information is mysteriously absent from the topo. From Couiza, take the Arques road, then turn right (direction Rennes-les-Bains) after about 5 km. 600 metres further on there's a track on the left. Take it, head around the first hairpin at 200 metres, then park on the left shortly afterwards. Continue on foot along the track, ignoring the first turn to the left. The path up to the cliff is marked with a wooden stake. Head steeply up through woods, keeping to the right when in doubt, and arrive at the level of the crag just below the left-most sector (Les fourmis rouges).
