Description 

Les Cinq ¬nes (the five donkeys) is a 70m high crag sporting nearly 60 pitches ranging from 4a to stiff 7c.

Many single and/or multi pitch options available.

Fine, steep and outragious positions available on routes springing forth from the lush forest.


Getting There 

Easiest way may be to take the Sentier des PÍcheurs (the fisherman's trail), then cutting to the right (north) a few switchbacks above the river.

The Sentier des PÍcheurs is located, from the parking area, just past the Friterie restaurant, on the left and descends on steps down towards the river.

Another option would be to take any of the trails down to the river, and, just follow the river on trails upstream until you notice that the really big rocks are coming to an end.

Les Cinq ¬nes is located just to the right of Le Mťrinos, the most northerly of the really big formations. Le Mťrinos is almost directly opposite the Ch‚teau de Freˇr.

An undeniable classic. Les Cinq ¬nes has fantastic exposure and phenominal position as it climbs up the steep, main prow of the formation.Pitch 1: scramble on low angle rock, gaining the lower angle ridge crest and rising up to the right towards steeper ground. Step to the left and climb a corner system which morphs into a chimney. Belay at the top of the chimney. Around 90 feet long.Pitch 2: climb on bucket holds up and to the right.
