Climbs at this crag
500m past the village of Orlu (travelling from Ax) a bridge over the river leads to a car park / picnic area.
Walk east back towards the village (on the opposing side of the river) and the first of the bouders will come into sight at the first river bend. From here follow the trail up the hill and into the woods.
Although very tempting, do not camp at the picnic/parking area. There is a campsite at the other end of the Orlu village.
