Bonson is a nice village in the south of France, about 45min from Nice. The crag is located at the top of the small hill around the corner (can't see it from the village). The climbing is good, lots of easy routes and a few 6c's and one 7a. The routes are mostly quite short, max 20m. The good thing is, is that the crag is very well bolted. It is an offcial climbing site that the french Climbing federation (FFME) uses to teach climbing through schools and universities. I would recommend climbing here all year round, except in summer as it will probably get really hot!
