Facing south at an elevation of 1,100 metres, the Arbaz crag is ideal for climbing right through to early winter. With its 3 sectors comprising 63 routes, the Arbaz sector is equally suited to beginners and experienced climbers.
The Arbaz climbing site is made up of three sectors. The first and second, "west" and "east" respectively, are on the main cliff. The third, the "lower east" sector, is located around a hundred metres to the east of the main cliff.
If you are coming by car, it is essential to park next to the football pitch, close to the petanque courts. It is strictly forbidden to park on the road below the cliff. A large car park is available. Click on the button below to open a google maps page with the precise GPS coordinates of the car park.
