The is the impressive crag you see from the autoroute as you pass to the west of Macon heading south. There are many bolted climbs around the upper tier.
The crag falls into the "Must visit if in the area" category. A fair amount of good routes for the 5a - 6b climber and a nice few for people in the easier grades.
It has a museum at the bottom as this is a historic landmark, that shows how early man hunted errrr horses! It provides a toilet and an easy path to the top of the crag. I topped out into a group of American tourists who seemed to enjoy it.
You can buy the guidebook for the crags in the immediate area from the Café for €12.
Head to Macon on the N6, Take the 1st exit onto Boulevard de la Résistance/D17 heading to Charnay-lès-Mâcon, Take a right then left to get on the D54 - STAY ON THIS (especially is you have a large vehicle), it bends under the crag at "Solutre Pouilly".
Route de la Roche, 71960, Solutré for Campervan. Cars use the main car park on the right off the main road.
From the carpark, walk up to the museum and take the path to the left for sector Choucas, or keep going and take a left to the other sections.
Look out for the footpath sign after the museum for "Escalade".
