LA ROCHE RONDE


A fine dome of a crag in a spectacular setting that overlooks the hamlet of Contrac. Despite a fine set of climbs, it doesn't see as much action as most of the other cliffs in the area, the long(-ish) approach walk being the main reason. There is some loose rock around and quite a lot of vegetation. Many of the routes are multi-pitch - helmets are a sensible idea here. There are outlying crags, but only the main section is described.
