CITERNE


Citerne is a pleasantly-situated crag named after the huge water tanks that are partly hidden in the trees below the cliff. The climbing isn't particularly outstanding though the accessibility of the place rather makes up for this. Being so close to the city, it is no surprise that many of the routes, especially the easier ones, are quite polished. The crag faces west and makes a great afternoon and evening venue. It is exposed to the Mistral and any wild weather blowing in from the west.
