Mt Coudon, Main Crag Var, FRANCE
Climbs 133 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 406m a.s.l – Faces S
A beautifully situated south facing crag overlooking eastern Toulon. It is essentially a continuation of another crag, Baudouvin. It has a number of sectors and a wide range of grades. Sector Rose Marie, the left-most sector has good quality mainly single pitch routes from F5 to F7a. To its right, Sector Grandes Voies has a number of attractive multi-pitch routes between 4+ and 6b+ and up to 75m in length. A group of small sectors adjacent to the descent route and below the hang-glider launch pad have a collction of mainly easier routes, some multi pitch but mainly shorter. The routes right of Sector les Des, starting with Sector Pepsi Max contain most of the harder routes on the crag, though with some easier offerings scattered amongst them. Some of these sectors may be reached with advantage by a descent route starting from a higher car park.

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.
