Crag features

An extensive west-facing crag in a great setting. There are over 80 routes here, the easy ones are quite popular though the harder ones see little action despite there being some excellent routes on offer.

It is west-facing getting lots of afternoon sun. The crag is more sheltered than others hereabouts but doesn't give any dry climbing if it is raining.

Approach notes

Pass through the centre of Aiguines and turn left 50m before a thin concrete bridge over the road (into the recycling area) then follow the road through the buildings (narrow!). Beyond these continue for 300m to parking at the end of the track. 50m back from the parking a path branches right, swings round a narrow valley and leading almost horizontally to the climbing. 

It is possible to avoid the narrow section by continuing through the centre of Aiguines in the direction of Comps sur Artuby. Arriving at the Camping de l'Aigle after 700m turn left down a tiny road which follows the edge of the campsite to join the other approach. Those camping at the Galetas campsite can approach the crag direct from there.
