Description

Small bouldering gem hidden in the forests above Lodève. You can find here boulders of all difficulties, scattered along a long sandstone cliff in a beautiful environment. The rock quality is excellent, the fine grained sandstone almost resembles the one of Fontainebleau.

Locally, a system of coloured arrows is used, indicating the location and the difficulty of problems (pink=kids, yellow=easy, green=not easy, blue=not easy at all, red=difficult). Thus, a visit without topo guide is unproblematic. Many easy boulders for families with kids, but also some hard (and highball) test-pieces.

Access issues inherited from France

Some privately owned climbing areas may have restricted access. Check with https://www.ffme.fr/

Approach

Park your car on the big "climbing" parking besides the street above the crag. Cross the street and take the obvious path down through the woods to reach sector Ruisseau after few minutes.

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.
