Combe de l'Ermitage

A friendly little crag with some  excellent mid grade routes. It has easy access, gets the sun until mid afternoon and is well bolted with mostly slabby / vertical routes up to 30m in length.

The crag has two distinct butresses, Les balcons des villes on the left (looking in) and Les jardins des villes on the right. The direct approach path arrives between the two.

Les Balcon has roughly 40 routes between 6b and 7c on the LHS and between 4c and 6a

Les Jardins has about 50 routes mostly between 5b and 7b.
