One of the best single-pitch routes at Genat: Galilée (7a+/7b) © chez Arran
Steep limestone crag in SW France, with a large concentration of routes between F7a and F8c. Climbable all year round, though best to arrive early or wait until after 4pm in summer. Good wet weather venue due to the angle of the rock, and a natural sun-trap in winter - it is possible to climb here even when it is above the snow line. Recent equipping has added a swathe of easier routes, thus making the crag more interesting to a wider audience.
From Tarascon-sur-Ariege, take the D8 in the direction Niaux-Vicdessos. In the village of Niaux, take the D508 signposted Alliat and Genat. After 3.5km (and after the 9th bend), take a track on the left and park in a small quarry. The crag is reached in 2-3 minutes by following a footpath to the right of where the road is blocked by a farm gate.
