Interesting rock climbing area for routes up to 5c, from 6a to 6c and from 7a to 7c (french grades).
Many additional skills about progressing, belaying, escaping technics ... are necessary for multipitch routes security.

Répartition des voies :
We liked this/these route(s) : Super Pilier (5 sup) ; Hêtre ou ne pas être (6a) ; GDB (6b)
Further information(s) : As part of the rehabilitation of the area by the FFME Departmental Committee, new routes have emerged in particular with the creation of "multi pitches routes" in west face. You can now reach the top of the Roche Corbière from the "chemin des acqueducs" 90 m higher up in 5 lengths. Major area for the region allowing sports climbing a bit confusing but quality.
"Mur des jambons" offers a nice boulder problem :)
