The crag at Les Guions as seen from the N94 in St Crepin. The iron cross is on the center formation. We approached by dropping down the northern side of the northern formation. Worth studying the photo for a second because you will be approaching from above and won't be able to see the cliffs to get oriented.   Unhooked trigger wire   000 c3  Nearing the top of 100 Duros.
