Crag features

A tall and imposing cliff that gets morning sun and afternoon shade. It only has a small set of routes, but a couple of these are real crackers that see very little action. A rack of gear will be required.

Approach notes

Park on the lowest bend on the one-way-system beyond the Miroir du Fou (this is 1.5km before the Chalet de Malines) and head down the open slopes (vague tracks) to a conspicuous solitary tree. From the solitary tree, continue down for 30m until a cairn marks a crossroads. From here, head left (looking out) in the direction of road tunnels on the opposite bank of the Verdon, until finally trending back right to reach a large cairn and the abseil anchors of Les Caquous.

Descent - Either abseil down Les Caquous (50m rope minimum and knot the ends!) or on foot by skirting the left-hand side of the cliff (looking out).

Guidebooks

France : Côte d'Azur

Côte d'Azur covers the famous cliffs of Calanques, Sainte Victoire and the Verdon and also includes some of the great venues around Toulon, the sunniest city in France. Plus there is the popular winter venue of Châteauvert, the less well known Esterel and Châteaudouble area. Add in Saint Jeannet and a selection of cliffs in the Nice area and this will become an essential volume for any climber.
