Summary

High altitude and north orientation makes this crag ideal for summer. The routes are mostly vertical with some more overhanging or slabby parts.

Description

  • Sun: The left sector 'Yellowstone' gets sun in the morning. The other sectors get sun in the late evening.

Access issues

Closed usually to July to protect bird nesting

Approach

Drive through the village 'Prey d'aval' and continue uphill following the signs for „Col de la Pousterle“ untill you reach a small parking area for 3 cars (44.8108, 6.5129). There is also a larger parking area 250m before the first one (44.8123, 6.5117).

Follow the small path behind the upper parking area eastbound and downwards till you reach a crossing (44.8133, 6.5164) at which you should turn right. At the next crossing (44.8134, 6.5185) you can go left for the sector 'Yellowstone' or right for 'Les Boeufs Rouges' and 'Flamme de Pierre'. For 'Les Boeufs Rouges' take the left path at the next crossing and the right one for 'Flamme de Pierre'.

Ethic inherited from France

Park where indicated, take care of the environment, buy the local guidebook when possible (this is one of the ways you can help local route setters), clean up your shoes before climbing, don't spray beta, be polite.
