Mt Coudon, Main Crag

Climbs 135 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 406m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Coudon is the highest and most northerly of the mini-mountains that surround Toulon. The southern flank of the mountain (and lot of the northern side too) is a long ribbon of high quality limestone in a superb setting. It offers a broad selection of routes with a good spread of grades and a variety of styles here - most teams should find plenty to do here.

Access notes
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.
