A dam is located upstream of the climbing areas. Depending on the waterflow (m3/s) some of the areas aren't accessible. Informations regarding current waterflow are available throught this link.
From the current waterflow check with the limiting waterflows :
- 0 to 40 m3/s - Access to everything
- 85 to 100 m3/s - Access to everything but "L'Amphithéâtre du nouveau délire"
- At 190 m3/s - Access is limited to "Entrance Area" and pretty much everything at "La Guignolée"
- 400 to 450 m3/s - Access is limited to "Entrance Area" and a few climbs at "La Guignolée"
To get to the routes you must cross the bridge by foot and turn left right after you cross it (into a small gravel byway). A small but obvious footpath will appear...keep left on this path as this leads you down into the gorge...a wooden staircase and path lead you down and westward and it's a 2 minute walk to the first routes on your right. Once you clear the trees, you're there!
