Great little spire overlooking the beach at En Vau.

Popular venue and with good reason: great position, good rock, fun routes.

10 routes ranging from 4c to 6a.

Some of the routes' moves can be VERY polished!

Take care using a 60m rope on this spire: the routes are right at 30m or so. Put a knot in the blunt end of the rope! You're a long hike from help here.

Getting There 

Take the hiking trail down to the beach at En Vau, turn around...thar she blows. Its the obvious short little spire directly behind the middle of the beach.

Approach from Port Miou or Col de la Gardiole can take 40 minutes to an hour or so.

Climbing Season

For the France area.
