Route Description


Heaps of multipitch routes on all sides of this formation. The best seem to be on the side facing the Meuse river (face Meuse) and the Southern side. The north face features some nice little one pitchers.

The classic route of the entire area is Le Merinos (4c, 5 pitches) which was first climbed in 1930.

Essential Gear


10-12 draws, 60m rope, small wires (or enjoy the runouts), helmet.
