Perhaps the best known of the Toulon cliffs, 'Baou' has a great selection of routes across the grades. There are plenty more hard offerings on the steep, shady cliffs above and right of the parking, great on hot summer days.
Crag lies on a prominent hill between Le Revest-les-Eaux and the town of Ollioules, on the outskirts of Toulon. May be hard to find without satnav guidance, but try this: some way below the crag is a suburb called les Quatre Chemins (where, confusingly about 6 roads converge) which is signposted from the main Toulon - Revest road, D46. From les 4 Chemins, follow the D67 north. After about 800m, after a sweeping right hand bend, take a minor road doubling back left, Chemin de Baou de Quatro Ouro (may be D262). After another 700m fork right. From 400m up this road a rough road goes up steeply with 2 hairpins towards the crag; park at the top (or park at junction and walk up).
|Crag has under gone a Re-Bolting program many lower offs have been changed - the Routes are now LONGER. Notably in the UMMAGUMMA sector.|
