Crag features

An incredible venue with more areas to climb than you could deal with in a very long trip plus an awesome via ferrata traverse through the middle of the face. I would reccomend anyone in the area to visit, especially on a wet day as there is a small section (grotte des vaudois) that you can actually climb while its raining, all around 5c-6b and the via can quite happily be done in the wet with many caves and sheltered bits en-route to stop and have lunch. Just make sure to look up and around the corner, not down at the end of the first half of the via unless you want to cut it short!

Approach notes

There are a few small parking bays on the way up that are free and pretty well marked.
