rock climbling in the ariege pyrenees
  • Ax-les-Thermes:

    Although best known for the big mountain routes on the Dent d'Orlu and the boulders at Orlu and Bisp, a number of bolted crags around Ax fill in the gap in sizes:
    Rocher d'Entres-Serres and Rocher de la Galline offer 60 routes from 3 -7b on gneiss.
    Plateau de Bonascre (Rocher du Baou): 23 routes from 5b -7c on clean granite at the ski-resort at Bonascre.
    Mérens (Roc de la Spelungue): 3 long routes on granite up the road to Andorra from Ax.
