Crag features

Small limestone escarpment in a nice setting. Mainly bouldering with some short routes. Even some F2's for the aspiring toddler!

Approach notes

Take the D10 from Lavelanet. At Rapy take the D1 for Foix. After about 12km at a village called General turn right for Arabaux. The crag is accessed from the top of the village. There is a signposted path which forks right after about 150m then leads eventually to the climbing areas.

Guidebooks

France : Ariege

The Ariège region of Southern France is the compact area where the Ariège River cuts through the Pyrenées on its way from Andorra to the coast. There is a lot of high quality climbing in the area with a superb variety of rock types to go at; from the soaring granite slabs of the Dent d’Orlu, to the steep limestone bulges of Génat. Limestone, granite and gneiss are on offer and routes vary in size from boulder problems to long epics of over 20 pitches. The area has a long and intriguing history and offers plenty to do apart from the climbing, including mountain walking, caving, river rafting, skiing and checking out the many ancient castles. Factor in the year-round climbing, easy access from northern Europe and plenty of high quality accommodation in the area and it is easy to see that the Ariège region has lots to offer. This guidebook covers all the major climbs on the crags covered. It details sport routes and longer mountain trad. There are also sections on mountain walks and other activities.

Out of print:
A bit like a slightly bigger bolted version of Hutton Roofs. Not a great crag, but in the rain shadow of the mountains so can be dry when wet elsewhere. Apparently the bouldering is better than the routes.
