  • Small but very well designed, could use a facelift. This is my home climbing gym and there are well over a hundred different routes pretty well graded although the ones under 5.11 (6b) are not as accurate as the ones above that grade. They could use an auto-belay or two for doing laps alone, but there is almost always someone willing to belay another climber. The entire place is small and on rainy or bad visibility days gets very crowded. The locker rooms and waiting area are a bit run down, but everything works. It's not like Brooklyn Boulders, but the staff is super friendly, the climbing good and plenty of stuff to get a workout.
  • I climbed it in 1968 and traversed to Aigue De Midi.
