Containing both single and multi pitch routes and great rock, this is the west-most area of Rochers de Nugues.

There is around 10 multipitch routes that gain the plateau above in 3 to 5 pitches. The popular moderate route here is Pilier de Nugues.

There are over 20 single pitch routes ranging from 5c+ to 7b+.

Getting There 

Take the trail to the west of the hairpin corner just below the tunnel on the D292 road. In 5 to 10 minutes, one gains nearly all the routes on a good trail.
