Crag features

When you consider how much quality rock there is next to the road in the nearby Gorge du Tarn, to be worth the thirty minute approach walk, the quality of climbing at Le Boffi would have to be nothing short of fantastic - fortunately, it is! Catering mostly for climbers operating in the mid 6s upwards, there is a huge amount to go at, and a visit is highly recommended even if you're not a big fan of walking. It is worth noting that there are some very long pitches at Le Boffi, and your experience of climbing here will be enhanced by bringing an 80m rope.

The area is exposed, but gets sun and shade in roughly equal measures. The Damned and all the crags to the right soak up the sun up to mid afternoon, sectors left of The Damned get sun from mid afternoon. You can chase sun or shade to allow comfortable climbing and pretty much any time of year, though in the winter you will be wanting the sun to be out.

Approach notes

The crag can be accessed from Le Rozier/Peyreleau by following the D29 then the D110 to the Hamlet of Longiers. Go past Longiers for 300m, and turn left on a dirt track (there is a sign to the climbing). The D110 can also be accessed from Millau, in this direction you will find the dirt track leading off to the right 300m before you reach Longiers (keep an eye out for the sign). Drive down the dirt track for 800m until you reach a barrier and a parking area.

To reach Grotte de l'Amour, Trocadéro and Mauvaise Pente, follow the track behind the right-hand barrier until you reach a large cairn. From here, follow a narrow track on the left which leads down into the woods and onto the path at the base.

To reach the sectors from The Damned to Boffidus Actif, pass the barrier and continue along the track in the same direction as you were driving. After 1.6km you will reach a sign regarding the Via Ferrata - take the left fork in the path and continue along then down a steep gully to the crag. The first crag you come to is Les Lutins, continue down to the base.
