Crag features

Baou des Prannes is a magnificent crag, the most impressive in the area. It has both single and multi-pitch climbs in a fine, exposed and sunny setting. Only a brief guide is included here.

Approach notes

Head out of from Châteaudouble towards Ampus. 3km after leaving Châteaudouble the twisty road becomes dead straight for 1.7km. 260m along here there is extensive parking in the woods on the left at the head of a muddy track that runs into the woods. Follow this for 900m to a sharp left turn then a little further, to a big square cairn just before a clearing. Branch right, downhill and across the head of a small valley to reach the base of the cliff just round the corner.

France : C?te d'Azur

Côte d'Azur covers the famous cliffs of Calanques, Sainte Victoire and the Verdon and also includes some of the great venues around Toulon, the sunniest city in France. Plus there is the popular winter venue of Châteauvert, the less well known Esterel and Châteaudouble area. Add in Saint Jeannet and a selection of cliffs in the Nice area and this will become an essential volume for any climber.
