Pic du Perthus Var, FRANCE
Climbs 20 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 257m a.s.l – Faces SE
Tucked away in the centre of the Estérel is this fine, rocky peak that got a great deal of attention from the early pioneers; several of the routes were put up in the early 1970s as true adventure outings. Many of their ancient pegs, concreted wire loops and huge painted arrows are still visible on the cliff. As elsewhere in the area, the better quality routes have been bolted, giving them a new lease of life. Despite this, the cliffs are rarely busy, indeed, the likelihood is that you will have the place to yourself.
30 minutes walk from parking at the Col du Mistral.

Road is closed to old car park adding an extra km to walk. Walk in is up to an hour and beware instruction in rockfax, difficult to find the correct path. Keep left at the cairn and keep a look out for a very rough track that is the path up to the crag. Also wild boar about so be careful. Named Routes are difficult to find on the crag as well.|
