Crag features
Mixture of juggy cracks and smooth blank faces. Some climbs harder than they look. Crag is a little hidden behind trees but gives good shelter if the weather is showery. Well bolted and gear looks like in process of being updated

Access notes
Drive out of Marcilhac towards Saint Sulpice. Crag is up on the hillside above, about half way along. Go past the layby that the scuba divers use to gear up and look out for a small track that is almost driveable, sloping up the hill, pointing back in the direction of Marcilhac. The crag is just above you looking out over the river. Walk up this track, which will bend back on itself and keep up it looking for a small track off to the left. Take this walking track and climb up till you see a break in the stone wall on your left, as you are coming up to a short face of rock. take this vague track and follow the ridge round over a couple of stone walls till you are parallel with the river and the road again and the rock face is on your right. La Balme is the first section, in the trees.
