Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 817m a.s.l
Another perfect Annot crack! Dedicata alla val di mello (6a). Lots of big cams needed! © Lionel Catsoyannis
Annot is an excellent trad area. Topo available in the Bar de Commerce in Annot. For a first visit I recommend "la Chambre du Roi" and "la vire inter" at about 40 minutes from the railway station. Bring lots of cams from the smallest to the biggest! There is lots of cracks in all sizes. For protection on holes smaller cams like alien/totem cams may be very usefull.

A collection of large sandstone boulders just behind Annot railway station. Routes are generally quite short but fierce. Many climbs have been 'created' and feature drilled pockets, but this has been done with a great deal of care and you may not even notice. However, in some sections, particularly Le Jardin de Roi and the Vitamania area, the chipping is much more blatent and ugly.
Much bouldering available in the area, though there are access issues; see http://www.annotabloc.org/ for more info and topos.
