Lavelanet (Dreuilhe)

Climbs 37 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 486m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Disused railway cutting, at the side of what is now a cycle track. Beginner friendly (popular with young groups), well bolted, 6 to 20m long.

The area is divided into two parts. The main climbing sector is at the side of the track and is composed of 13 routes of which the majority are F4. The bolts are close together and the lower offs are provided with clips. At the right of the main wall there is a short path that leads to the other area, containing climbs in the F6 to F7 range.

Though the area is generally very good for children please take note that a river runs close by.

Access notes
About 2km north of Laroque-d'Olmes heading towards Lavelanet from Mirepoix on the D625. Turn left just after the Lidl supermarket and go through the village centre. The disused railway track is easy to spot, you have to cross it. Park nearby and go up the track for about 400 metres.
