France : Ariege

The Ariège region of Southern France is the compact area where the Ariège River cuts through the Pyrenées on its way from Andorra to the coast. There is a lot of high quality climbing in the area with a superb variety of rock types to go at; from the soaring granite slabs of the Dent d’Orlu, to the steep limestone bulges of Génat. Limestone, granite and gneiss are on offer and routes vary in size from boulder problems to long epics of over 20 pitches. The area has a long and intriguing history and offers plenty to do apart from the climbing, including mountain walking, caving, river rafting, skiing and checking out the many ancient castles. Factor in the year-round climbing, easy access from northern Europe and plenty of high quality accommodation in the area and it is easy to see that the Ariège region has lots to offer. This guidebook covers all the major climbs on the crags covered. It details sport routes and longer mountain trad. There are also sections on mountain walks and other activities.
More info
the French online tope and information page mentions a 20 min walk in.... well done if you make it in that time, aim for 45mins. 20 mins on the way down is possible though.
