UBRIEUX

An old cliff that has some polished horrors on in places. In other parts, the routes are excellent and some of the best in the entire area.

West facing and 35m high, you are asking for an accident if you climb here with a 60m rope (I'm not kiddin).

Big slabby walls that generally give lovely 6a climbing, but then throw in a crux move - which can be anything from English 5b-6c.

Our guidebook gives crux move grades for all of the routes here, so you will not get sandbagged (unlike the local guidebook).

The position is lovely, and the base of the routes make belaying pretty straightforward.

The cliff has 50-60 routes on at present, but extends for a kilometre up to its right, so keep an eye out for new routes in the future.

There is also another big lump of rock opposite this that is due for future development.
