Uphill

An attractive area of slabs with a good set of well-bolted routes, many in the lower grades. There are some two and three-pitch offerings here as well. Almost all of the climbs have been rebolted in the not-too-distant past and, many of them are quite polished, which often makes the starts a bit tricky. The area is sheltered from the worst of the Mistral by the bushes at the cliff base.
