Crag features

A beautiful crag in a splendid setting, though it is mostly hard climbing. There are a number of wildly-steep overhangs nearby, which make even Turbulence look like a soft touch - these are described in the local topo - though are clearly still in development. While you are here it is well worth a quick walk around the village - there is plenty of parking available by the side of the road after the village.

Facing south, these crags get a lot of sun, and you should factor that in when deciding to pay a visit. Unless you're going for a quick tan, aim to come in winter or on a cloudy day. Turbulence is steep, so naturally prone to seepage if it has been raining heavily. Jo Barre Team also faces south, but does at least allow some shade for belaying.

Approach notes

Cantobre lies just off the D991 that links Millau to Nant. About 28km from Millau, turn off the D991 in the direction of Cantobre. The official advice is to park on the right before you reach the bridge and walk - though most drive all the way along the narrow road to the hydro-electric station, where there is very limited parking. From the official parking spot, follow the road towards the village, and take the first left. Continue for 500m and you will reach a small hydro-electric station. Continue on a trail along the edge of the field, to a stream. Walk upstream for a short while until it is possible to cross on some stepping-stones. The path continues up to Turbulence, and then over to Jo Barre Team.

Guidebooks

France : Languedoc-Roussillon

The third book in the Rockfax France series covers the extensive and fertile climbing area west of the author's previous guide to Haute Provence. The areas covered largely surround the beautiful Parc National des Cévennes, but also includes crags that are close to the cities of Nimes and Avignon.
