Access

description

Lovely, 50-m limestone cliff with layers and stalactites, well-equipped (except Sommergard, the leftmost sector). Numerous routes at 5c/6a. This is the ideal crag for progressing at these grades.

The cliff is composed of 3 distinct areas:

  • Sommergard: the leftmost sector, with old hardware.
  • The low sector: easiest area to access, at the center of the cliff.
  • The high sector: the right part of the face, on a wide ledge.

Means of descent

Belay chains for all routes.

Remarks

Equipped with normal spacing, with the first protection sometimes pretty high. The site is very sunny, but not protected from the wind except for the "Rue des écoles" sector.

pedestrian access

From Aureille near Salon de Provence (Alpilles), take the road to 1km from Eygalières. Park in the large area on the right and follow the path toward the cliff.
