Crag features

With a very short approach, a range of excellent routes across the grades, a campsite a short walk away, and a river at its base, there's little wonder that Mazet is a popular spot. Due to its popularity, Mazet does have a fair amount of polish on its classic routes, which does add a grade or so of difficulty to the most severely affected routes. That being said, it is still an enchanting spot, very family friendly and well worth a visit.

Facing southwest, Mazet gets morning shade and afternoon sun. The river gorge provides some shade in the late afternoon as the shadow slowly works its way up the wall.

Approach notes

Leave the D252 and follow the road (avoiding the driving into the campsite) across the bridge, and follow the sign into the car park. From here simply follow the river around to the right (looking out) and the crag starts in under a minute.

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.

Out of print:
Took me two trips to find this place! You can walk along the river from the Mazet plage parking and then head up into the forest (about 15 minutes or so) - crag on the left before the first marked boulder circuits appear or park at the Endieu parking and walk up the road 100metres or so and follow the Route 19B to the right (marked yellow). This winds down through the boulder circuits; branch off right as the path drops more directly down to the river and follow a small path marked by a yellow cross. In August the bottom of the crag was in the shade till about 2pm and there are great views from the top.
