Auzat is home to a set of popular granite cliffs just to the south of the village of the same name. The huge pipes that carried the water to power the aluminium smelter are conspicuous to the right of the cliff. There are over 200 routes here, generally they are well-bolted on superb rock. Most are single pitch, though there are a few short multi-pitch outings as well. Sector Principal is quite popular as a group venue, best have a reserve plan in case there are a couple of big coaches in the car park.
The buttresses generally face south or east and it is usually possible to find sun or shade as required. The crag takes quite a lot of drainage, and some sections can be slow to dry after rain, though it is usually possible to find some dry rock to play on. The trees offer some shade in hot weather.
From Tarascon-sur-Ariège, drive south through Niaux and Vicdessos to the village of Auzat. Continue through the village and past the old aluminium smelter to parking on the right just before the road crosses a river on a high bridge (signs for the climbing) - 16km from Tarascon. This is the parking for the Sectors Principal and Montcalm.
For Sector le Far, continue for another 750m to a bridge over the river leading to an Equestrian Centre. There is extensive parking just before this on either side of the road.
