ROC DE SÉDOUR


This is the fine peak to west of Tarascon and east of Calamès. It has three main developed sectors, though sadly at the moment one of these is banned - the Grande Paroi, the tall buttress directly below the summit of the mountain. There are several mid-grade multi-pitch routes here but currently climbing is not allowed because of fears about rockfall. That leaves us with the fiercely overhanging test-pieces of the Dévers (Overhangs) and the soaring pitches of the Cimetière des Boucs - both of which are well worth a visit if you are up to the grades and/or approach walk. We also cover the quarry at Bédeilhac but that is hardly a selling point.
