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.
