LE CAROL


A pleasant limestone crag on the crest of a wooded ridge, with a fine collection of hard routes and enough easier and middle-grade offerings to make at least one visit worthwhile for most teams. The climbing is easy to access, mostly on vertical faces and up steep finger-cracks, but the style is generally very fierce.
