Sheltered

A secluded-feeling section of the crag that has a broad array of styles on offer including some spectacular tufa-encrusted roof climbs. To the right of the cave is an area with some pleasant orange-spot routes. The area is generally much quieter and less polished than the more obvious delights of the Loubiere/Oiseaux sectors.
