Climbs 40 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 1417m a.s.l – Faces SW
The climbing is better than it looks, but perhaps not worth a special trip. Can be combined with a visit to the local village, which is very pretty if you can time it to avoid the tour buses. Most routes are the range 4 to 6a, but can feel hard for the grade due to the steepness.

Climbs at this crag
* Climbs listed in red are waiting to be checked by a crag moderator, and may not be accurate.
Ignore the guidebook access information, which is wrong.
It is a 5 minute walk, not 30 minutes. Follow this description instead.
From the tourist information continue up the road for approx. 50m before taking a left fork along a pleasant street with bars shops and a bank. At the end of this turn left and right into a square with drinking fountains. (the bars here are the nearest to the crag). Exit from the square at its far end and proceed downhill for about 50m. Here turn right and follow the road northwards (in the direction of the mountains). Leaving the village the road becomes a dirt track. Take the footpath that forks right off the track, this leads to the crag in about 5 minutes.
