Crag features

Chaulet is everything you might expect of an Ardèche crag; sunny limestone, great routes across a wide range of difficulties, camping within a stone's throw and a river that is sure to cool you off in the middle of a summer's day. The central section of crag has a lovely rock-beach that slopes down into the river - perfect for lazy picnics and serious sun-bathing.

The climbing is also top notch; excellent-quality rock and some beautiful, well-bolted routes. The idyllic beach does mean that the crag is quite popular and some of the routes are showing signs of age and polish, especially at the right-hand end of the crag.

The crag faces south, and the only shade to be found is amongst the trees at the left-hand side. During the winter, it's a great sun-trap, but in the summer be prepared to get hot.

Approach notes

From the parking area (signed Site d'Escalade), continue on foot down the road, ignoring a marked trail leading off to the right. Turn the bend in the road and take the steep path down on the right. Scramble down and turn right at the bottom, the crag soon appears on your right. Alternatively, you can approach from the campsite across the river by wading or paddling - this is not an option in the winter, especially if the river is swollen.

Guidebooks

France : Languedoc-Roussillon

The third book in the Rockfax France series covers the extensive and fertile climbing area west of the author's previous guide to Haute Provence. The areas covered largely surround the beautiful Parc National des Cévennes, but also includes crags that are close to the cities of Nimes and Avignon.
