St Cezaire

Climbs 171 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 235m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
It is posible to climb all year, although it can be humid in December and January, due to the close proximity of the river. The crags offer some of the best tufa climbing in the south of France. However, there are some big runouts (apparently recently requipped: MO 9/3/12) on the original north-facing secteur (accessed by the via ferratta).

Access notes
There are topos and a map on Niceclimb.com and jegrimpe.com (under "Olivier Germain").

All these cliffs, generally called "St Cezaire", are located in the bottom of the valley approximately 5km between St Cezaire and Mons along the D105.

The first 3 are located approximately 200m before the bridge crossing the river "Siagne", where a small roads branches to the right underneath some very big cliffs: Secteur Roi du 7/Bruno is immediately above; Secteur EDF (you need to be discreet here, but climbing is tolerated) is just after the metal gate, 200m further on, barring access by car (park just before it on the left); Kalymnos is found by following the road on foot from the EDF parking until, just after the big house, a path on the right ascends upwards, turn left immediately after the 2nd bend (level with the roof of the house) and traverse northwards for approx 100 to 200m then up to the cliff, via one in situ handline.

The other 3 cliffs are located either side of the river "Siagnole" by following a path on the left bank for 500m and either traversing the river (for the south facing secteur) or by ascending the hillside and a short via ferrata. Park your car just after the bridge over the "Siagne" at the road junction. Parking can get busy here at weekends in summers due to family picknics.

Secteur Jean Marc Genevois is above the car park for Secteur EDF: a path leads up steeply opposite the left end of the parking, then traverses right under a cliff to eventually reach a chain, then up and back left passing another chain and eventually arriving at the right side of the cliff after about 10 mins.
