Climbing up the Goulette rock

DSC 1730

A pretty little site with about twenty fairly low climbing routes, that are not particularly difficult. Children can take the lead up to the top of the rock, followed by their parents or guide who can easily access the relays at the top by skirting around the cliff thanks to its low height.


The map of the climbing routes is at the bottom, on a wooden sign. Discover the climbing routes on the map!
