Another view of the prow above the vineyards.


This very impressive looking crag looks awesome. Unfortunately, it doesn't climb as nice as it looks. However, it does have some cool exposure and pleasant beginner to moderate routes. It is also very touristy and people like to hike up a path up the backside to stand at the summit above you. There's even a museum at the base of it!

Getting There 

From Macon, travel west to Solutré. You'll likely see this prominent prow from miles away. Follow the signs toward the Musée and park in the large parking area on the left.

Climbing Season

For the France area.
