Roquefixade - Chateau Ariege, FRANCE
Climbs 50 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 912m a.s.l – Faces SW
Impressive but slightly old-fashioned limestone crag below the Cathar chateau of Roquefixade, to the west of Foix in the French Pyrenees. Most of the climbing is in the 6a-7c bracket, though there are a few good, easier routes. Bolts are good but except on the hardest routes tend to be more spaced than on other sport crags in the area.
CLIMBERS CURRENTLY ASKED NOT TO CLIMB HERE DUE TO LOOSE ROCK AS OF 12 SEPTEMBER 2013. LOTS OF SIGNS & BARRIERS.
The village of Roquefixade is approximately 15km east of Foix and 5km west of the small town of Lavelanet, in the foothills of the Ariege Pyrenees. As you arrive, bear left along a road that contours around the bottom of the village and park in a small public parking space. If this is full, continue along the road another hundred metres or so, and park on the verge making sure there is room for agricultural vehicles to pass. To reach the crag, take the road up to the village square then follow the signs to the Chateau. Access time 5-10 minutes.
