LES MARINOUNS


A fine and extensive crag, set high above the valley floor, with a series of tall buttresses jutting from the trees. The crag gets plenty of sunshine and dries surprisingly quickly, despite the tree cover. Many of the pitches are very big, bring plenty of quick-draws - 15 should cover most routes - and a 70m rope. The tree-covered bases offer some respite from summer heat. The cliffs can be slow to dry after rain and any wind tends to whistle through the gorge. In winter, calm sunny days are the best choice.
