Conglomerate climbing (the french call this 'pudding') with pockets and edges. This is Frances version of Margalef, not quite the same quality and only about 80 or so climbs, but with lots of fun and gymnastic climbing. This north facing area recieves the shade most of the day. There is a fountain for drinking water at the parking and as with most of europe, there are no toilets at and it is difficult to do your buisness at the crag. The town of guillestre is quite small but there are a couple of restaurants and cafés/bars for your pre climbing java or post send beer.
located outside the town of Guillestre in the Hautes-Alpes region.
