Climbs at this crag
Can be approached either from above or below. The approach from above through the tunnel is now reopened and well used. The path below has been reinforced and well signposted.
For lower sectors follow the A8 and take the Monaco turn, or take the Moyenne Corniche from Nice through Eze. Turn left at the first traffic lights after the Motorway joins the Corniche. Park on the second or third hairpins with limited parking at each. Follow paths towards the obvious crags. The first you reach is La Loubiere.
For the higher sectors follow the Moyenne Corniche from Nice and follow signs for La Turbie (turn left just after Eze), or take the A8 turn for Monaco and again follow signs for La Turbie. Turn right in the village and fork left after 300m for 'Tete de Chien' and follow this road to the end. Park at the side of the road near the fort. The path through the tunnel leads down from the carpark at the end.
