Altitude 641m a.s.l
The climbing is upon large basalt columns (similar in appearance, not scale to the Giants Causeway) which offer climbing on aretes, and corners, with good pockets and edges. The climbing is mainly single pitch, however there are some mid - height belay stations for instructional use on the right hand wing. There are 3 sectors to the crag: sector 1 perhaps the tallest, sector 2 the most compact and clean rock, and sector 3 good length routes, although spoilt by the moss on the first 8 metres. At the far end of sector 3, there are the highest concentration of low grade routes, which are looking the worst for wear. The crag is equipped with large eco - bolts with double bolt lower offs.
Travel south east out of Langeac on the D585. Turn left at the village of Saint-Acrons-d'Allier and over the bridge on the D30. After about 300m turn right onto the D48 and follow this narrow tarmac road along the edge of the river Allier. After about 2 km, do not re-cross the bridge on the right, but continue straight down the narrow tarmac lane. After about 200 metres an impressive church will appear on the left, just after this there is a large layby. There is a notice showing the start of the footpath, 'Site de escalade'. Follow the white marked path steeply (!) uphill through the trees, for 15-20 minutes. The crag appears as you emerge from the trees. Part of the path at the foot of the crag has a narrow step, above a steep drop.
