MOUNT COUDON


Coudon is the highest and most northerly of the mini-mountains that surround Toulon. The southern flank of the mountain (and lot of the northern side too) is a long ribbon of high quality limestone in a superb setting. It offers a broad selection of routes with a good spread of grades and a variety of styles here - most teams should find plenty to do here.
