A fine dome of a crag in a spectacular setting that overlooks the hamlet of Contrac. Despite a fine set of climbs, it doesn't see as much action as most of the other cliffs in the area, the long(-ish) approach walk being the main reason. There is some loose rock around and quite a lot of vegetation. Many of the routes are multi-pitch - helmets are a sensible idea here.
The crag faces south, gets the full sun, and is exposed to the wind. There isn't much shelter here in poor weather, but it does dry quickly.
There is parking just above the village of Contrac, which is approached via a narrow road that branches north around 500m west of Rabat les Trois Seigneurs. A track heads out of the car park and, after about 100m, a path branches left (red/yellow flashes) heading up towards the left-hand side of the cliffs and onto the ridge. Approximately 120m beyond a spring, branch right at a switchback and head along a narrow path to the crag.
