LES BRANCHES


A tough crag with a mixture of steep tufa climbs and long technical wall climbs. A great place to escape the heat. Facing north, the crag gets almost no sun, so is a fine place to head to avoid the heat. During the winter and spring you should expect to find some or all of the tufas dripping wet, but there are plenty of routes on the vertical walls further left.
