The ambiance at sector Balcon in the Gorges des Gouleyrous © LeeWood
Sport climbing venue par excellence with good selection of low to mid grade climbs. Many sectors are in the Gorge des Gouleyrous but many more outlying, with all orientations represented to adapt for sun/shade and the infernal Tramontane (wind).
The greater region 'Route de Grimpe' was closed down by an accident in 2010. Tautavel re-opened in 2015. Oct 2019: most surrounding crags eg. Vingrau are now open but may not have been subject to the same scrupulous cleaning and provisions of security as Tautavel. They have been classified 'Terrain de Aventure' which simply means 'mountain conditions' - with which we are all familiar - requiring the usual due care and attention.
