LE CIRQUE DES GENS


This giant of a crag is well worth a look just to take in the vastness of the place. Shaped by the river into a perfect semi-circle, the Cirque des Gens offers plenty of sun and plenty of shade often at the same time. There is so much climbing here, that there simply has to be something for everyone.
