SANDSTONE, an intriguing word which in this case is a synonym for ‘exceptional grip’. A certain knowledge of the rock allows us to fully appreciate the stronger and weaker points of the rock.

Each face calls out to be climbed, so it is up to you to choose those that suit your climbing fantaisies.

Having overcome your first emotions, you will experience a unique climb.  The routes of 100-500m run along the length of the crazy and mischievous crack systems, through the Taffounis walls on the ever-changing contours, and all of stunning variety.

 The walks up to the rock faces are reduced to nothing thanks to the use of a 4x4.  Every route has a bivouac in the desert for welcome relaxation after the long hours of climbing.

A minimum level of 5 in Second is necessary to enjoy climbing in this area to the full.
