Altitude 384m a.s.l
A fine crag with a dramatic outlook over Toulon, and some excellent long pitches on fantastic grey rock. The easy accessibility and sunny sheltered nature of the crag are added bonuses.
The crag faces due south and is sheltered both by the bulk of Mount Faron and by its bowl-shaped nature. It can get very hot here, even in winter. It is largely sheltered from the Mistral.
Téléphérique is the highest of the three crags described on Mount Faron and the key to getting to it is to aim for the lower station of the Téléphérique. The coastal A50 (eastern) and A57 (western) motorways have a 2.5km section of ‘normal’ trunk road passing through the centre of Toulon, just north of the port. Turn north from the end of either motorway (signed 'Toulon Centre'). Mount Faron and its Téléphérique are sign-posted from the city, if in doubt, keep heading due north (uphill).
Once at the Téléphérique station, drive past it as the road - the Boulevard de l’Amiral Vence - bends left and becomes the Cornice Emile Fabre and eventually the Route du Faron. This is a narrow, winding road which leads round past the parking for Citerne and on up the one-way system. Park on the third hairpin bend (busy at weekends) with a viewpoint over to the right. The crag is visible from here and is reached in 5 minutes via a good track.
