Climbing at chateaudouble deep in Provence © brianrunner
A fine and extensive crag, set high above the valley floor, with a series of tall buttresses jutting from the trees. The crag gets plenty of sunshine and dries surprisingly quickly, despite the tree cover. Many of the pitches are very big, bring plenty of quick-draws - 15 should cover most routes - and a 70m rope.
Easy access. free parking. 20 minute max walk in on well marked out path down a wooded valley. About 15 mins drive from Draguignan
|The D955 is still closed (November 2012). If coming from the A8 it is probably best to follow the D54. The track is indeed very bumpy! Might be better to park somewhere on the road and walk down the track.|

|This is a lovely crag, about 20 minutes easy walk from the road and nice rural views out over the valley and back to the picturesque town of chateaudouble. In March 12 the D955 road was closed and we had to approach via Amps. We also left the car at the road as the 'narrow and bumpy track' looked too extreme for our hire car!|
