Further information(s) : The quarry of Saint Symphorien de Lay was used long time ago for the construction of the viaduct that now is dedicated to walkers. This climbing area is particularly suitable for family outings since no approach walk and the meadow allows children to play safely. Nice by warm day because of its orientation and the lake. Beautiful routes were equipped on the pillars of the viaduct and allow to rise to more than 30m!
Fin juillet 2021: Plusieurs utilisateurs ont rapporté que le site est interdit par arrêté depuis avril 2021(éboulements ?)... Plusieurs pancartes disent que le site est sous surveillance vidéo...
Seules les deux voies du viaduc semblent autorisées (un 6a de 15m et un 7a de 30 m).
