Crag features

Seynes is a thoroughbred crag of the very highest quality, and although the photos you're most likely to see are of wild, continuous tufa-routes, most of the crag consists of technical climbs taking slabby or vertical grey rock. In other words there is definitely something for everyone.

Facing south throughout, Seynes is no place to be on a sunny summer's day, however, if you find yourself here on a sunny winter's day, you'll quickly go from being snug in a down jacket to smug in a T-shirt. It is worth bearing in mind that Seynes is covered in flow-stone and tufas which will get wet after prolonged or heavy rain, and will take a while to dry out, so if it's been raining, the tufa routes may be impossible.

Approach notes

Seynes lies above the D6 that links Alès to Bagnols-sur Cèze. All the sectors are reached by following a track that runs parallel to the D6. 

The approach to Rouge Gorge from the west has now been blocked off. You can park on the main road and walk in however.
