CHAINE DU GRAND TRAVERS


This chain comprises two separate crags. On the left is the Rocher du Cayron and on the right is the Rocher Ecole also sometimes known as the Rocher Grand Travers. Rocher Ecole is a generally easy-angled and sunny crag. Popular with school groups etc so a bit polished and often very busy at weekends.
