Description 

The "bolts". Two main sectors, the left side being Secteur des Deux Ecailles and the right hand is Secteur Antirabique.

  • Secteur des Deux Ecailles has 22 routes from 4b to 7c+, with several two and three pitch outings. A number of single pitches in the 25m length, while others expand to 30 and 40m.

  • Secteur Antirabique has 17 routes from 4c to 6c with single pitches leading to second and third pitches. Pitch lengths from 30, 35 and 40m.

A fun location with enjoyable routes and a narrow staging area below the routes. The routes sprout up out of 10m high green foliage. Great rock.

Getting There 

From the parking lot at Les Deux Aiguilles, take the main trail towards Saint Victoire.

The blue trail leads to the climbing areas.

Featured Route For Les Boulons
Climbing through the distinctive geometry of Le Boulon du Milieu

Le Boulon du Milieu 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Europe : France : ... : Les Boulons
Grade reflects first pitch only. Pitch 1: 4c+. Pitch 2: 5b. Pitch 3: 5b+.Climb up through the inverted V-shaped roof and continue to a ledge, then up to an anchor above the ledge. Pitch two climbs up then takes a hard right to the anchor on La Boulon de Droite and the third pitch finishes up that route as well.Neat face climbing on surprisingly sticky rock. Looks intimidating from below but the holds magically appear when needed. Climbing through the shallow inverted V roof is bonus!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
