SABART


An amazing piece of rock, only a short distance from the road (set behind the local scrap-yard), consisting of a truly immense cave and some lesser, though still quite respectable, walls away to the left. The cave is one of the three main entrances to the Sabart/Niaux/Lombrives cave system which contains over 40kms of passages. The routes here are almost exclusively black-spots, and upper end of that too, but if you are up to it there are some outstanding exercises here.
