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.

Approach 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.

France : Ariege

The Ariège region of Southern France is the compact area where the Ariège River cuts through the Pyrenées on its way from Andorra to the coast. There is a lot of high quality climbing in the area with a superb variety of rock types to go at; from the soaring granite slabs of the Dent d’Orlu, to the steep limestone bulges of Génat. Limestone, granite and gneiss are on offer and routes vary in size from boulder problems to long epics of over 20 pitches. The area has a long and intriguing history and offers plenty to do apart from the climbing, including mountain walking, caving, river rafting, skiing and checking out the many ancient castles. Factor in the year-round climbing, easy access from northern Europe and plenty of high quality accommodation in the area and it is easy to see that the Ariège region has lots to offer. This guidebook covers all the major climbs on the crags covered. It details sport routes and longer mountain trad. There are also sections on mountain walks and other activities.
