Climbs at this crag
The large orange cliff, visible high up the hillside on the left. Cool in summer(shade in the afternoon).
Park on the right as you enter the village, on a straight section of road opposite a row of garages and near a blue "Hospital" sign. The path starts at the "Hospital" sign and goes between a couple of the houses (private land). Follow the steep path up the hill for 30 mins.
Les Balcons is further left up hill from La Grotte.
Both cliffs can also be approached by driving towards Tende and taking a road/track (at a large layby on the right just before you enter Tende) for a couple of km (following signs for the "Col de la Loubaira") up to the obvious large antenna. Then follow the white painted signs "Chemin de la Falaise". (10 to 15 mins downhill).
