MONT GAUSSIER


A terrific venue in a superb setting, and definitely worth a day or more of your time. From the steep and powerful routes at Les Abeilles to the super-long mid-grade endurance classics at Tisseurs d'Or, most needs are catered for here. The only short-coming is the lack of good routes in the 5s and below.
