Climbs at this crag
The crag is reached (from above) by the road to the summit of Mount Coudon (often closed when there is a high fire risk, i.e. dry windy conditions). The road (D446) begins at the col halfway between the settlements of La Valette du Var and Dardennes (D46). After several twisting kms of ascent (during which the car park for Baudouvin is passed) the road levels out then climbs again towards the summit. Park near the prominent hairpin (left hand bend) as the last ascent starts. Walk 50 metres to the parapente launch pad. Just before the pad a scramble with occasional blue spots and the odd bolt is found which leads down to Sectors Les Des and Petit Surplomb.
