Crag features

A recently developed crag featuring three excellent routes in an atmospheric yet convenient location. Take care on the climbs though as there is still a lot of cleaning to be done and there are several very large loose blocks. A helmet is a must.

Approach notes

The crag can be easily accessed from the top of the Col du Pourtalet. Park near all the shops, the climbs can be viewed from the carpark (the sideways rock striations are difficult to miss!). Follow the obvious jeep track to the base of the wall.
