BETA PHOTO: Dent d' Orlu East Face. Climbers can be seen on 2n...


around 50 routes fully bolted. The "dent d'orlu" has 3 different faces (2 different access). You can climb there from june to october. Granite.
All the routes are VERY WELL bolted (I've never put any friend or camalot!)
East face : sunny in the morning until 2 to 3 pm in summer. 20 routes, average 1200 feet, most of them are really easy : see the link below for a complete topo.
SOuth east face : most routes are arounf 600 feet and 3 to 4 are 3000 feet. Very well bolted also. A little bit more difficult than east face but reasonable anyway (imagine : you can climb 3000 feet with no pitch above 5.9 and fully equiped)
South face : some routes are much more difficult (up to 5.11d). Equipment is still excellent.
For a complete topo :

Getting There 

A car is needed! two different access depending on the face you want to climb! Access from Ax les Thermes (Ariege, France). Complete explanations on the topo (see the link above)
