Crag features

Greolieres offers mostly fingery wall and slab climbing, though there are hard steep routes as well.
Chouchou Place offers mostly fingery climbing up walls, often with unusual tuffery features.

La Descharge also is also generally fingery, though the upper sections of most routes are steeper.

All three cliffs face due south and dry quickly, though the tufas at Greolieres stay wet for a long time after prolonged rain.

Approach notes

Park at an obvious layby on the left, about 1km north of the village of Greolieres on the D2, near where the road rises up close to the crag (a few hundred metres after the track that goes up to Chouchou Place). Cross the road and follow the path that goes through the bushes and trees. A short brisk walk (5-10 mins) gains the crag from here.


For Chouchou Place: turn sharply right off the D2 (approx 200m after the last sharp bend above the village) and follow a rough dirt track for 100m. Park at the chapel. Continue along the track then go steeply up hill. Continue along the narrower footpath via several zig zags, eventually turning left (opposite a small tree) onto a fainter track heading towards the obvious red cliffs. This leads through the boulders to arrive at the right end of the cliff. Time around 15 mins.

For La Descharge: follow the D79 from Greolieres, in the direction of Andon, for approximately 2 km. After a sharp right hand bend, there is a parking area on the right. Park here. Follow the track up to an area where some work is being carried out, then follow the track up and left to a flat area (also possible to park here). From here follow either track (they join after a short while) uphill towards the obvious crag. Time about 15 mins.
