Crag features

A couple of small, slabby and popular cliffs that look out over the upper end of the Lac de St Croix and the lower end of the Verdon Gorge. They are in a sunny setting.

Approach notes

Park on the north side of the bridge, and cross the road at the bend where a good track heads left, then right, before climbing the scree to the lower crag. The upper crag is reached by walking under the lower crag, then heading diagonally up the hillside. Although just below the D952 Moustiers - La Palud road the upper cliff is not reachable from above - the terrain is steep and loose.

Guidebooks

France : Côte d'Azur

Côte d'Azur covers the famous cliffs of Calanques, Sainte Victoire and the Verdon and also includes some of the great venues around Toulon, the sunniest city in France. Plus there is the popular winter venue of Châteauvert, the less well known Esterel and Châteaudouble area. Add in Saint Jeannet and a selection of cliffs in the Nice area and this will become an essential volume for any climber.

Great selection of 6a's - if you don't mind some jamming mixed in!
