AUZAT


Auzat is home to a set of popular granite cliffs just to the south of the village of the same name. The huge pipes that carried the water to power the aluminium smelter are conspicuous to the right of the cliff. There are over 200 routes here, generally they are well bolted and on superb rock. Most are single pitch though there are a few short multi-pitch outings as well. Sector Principal is quite popular as a group venue, best have a reserve plan in case there are a couple of big coaches in the car park.
