A lovely tower of rugged, red rock. The setting is superb, looking out over the blue of the Med, and catching all the sun there is. There is a good selection of routes here, including some worthwhile lower-grade climbs - it is a pity the place isn't a little more extensive.
The crag is in a sunny setting and rapid drying, though exposed to the worst of the Mistral. It can get very hot.
Leave the motorway at J37 or 38 and follow signs for Fréjus. Before you enter Fréjus, turn left at a roundabout (signed 'Saint-Raphaël') to avoid the town. Continue along this road heading roughly straight on around both Fréjus and Saint-Raphaël until you pick up signs for 'Agay'. Continue towards Agay on the D100. Drive into the town and turn right at the sea front at a roundabout. Continue down this road, around the bay and along the coast for 2.5km, to another roundabout and turn left off the main road onto a small dead-end signed to the lovely little harbour of 'Port du Poussaï'. From the parking, walk left along the beach, then turn left and take the Sentier Littoral into the trees. Turn right along the tarmaced path and, at the high point, head leftwards (uphill) along a rough track that leads up to the base of the main cliff.
|Yes we enjoyed this crag. The red igneous rock was a joy to climb on, views were great and I recommend it.|

|A pleasant litle crag with easy access. The routes are enjoyable and it's a nice change from limestone. And the beach is close for when it gets too hot!|
