Many major climbing sites departing from the ARIEGE EVASION campsite:

Le Far : Equipped by the Gérard’s (Jalbert and Pouliquen), Didier Robert and David Marfaing (our boss). “School” equipped for pleasure on “mountain” climbs, where beautiful technical adhesion steps await you.

Le sédour : In 1973, La Fantillou was opened, still on the agenda, except February to June due to nesting!

Cimetiere des Boucs : 45min approach walk that is worth the detour: The dish of the day 6b and “the old Sam” with its tricky 7a start.

Calames : A current spot where you find everything: High level sporting routes and an adventure terrain.

La Roche Ronde : Highly visible and yet poorly frequented! To climb. Serious aid climb!

Le Roc à Stéph : How can Ariège Evasion fail to speak to you about our instructor’s site, Mr. Stéphane Estebe? Swany, jungle surf and the quite technical 6a in the 1st sector.

Sibada : To warm up your fingers: Macalou, “the rings of Saturn”, breathtaking 7C… and the essential 7a “sleeping fingers.”

Alliat : A bit of everything and beautiful! A new sector with 2 minutes approach walk from 5c to 8a passing through “Momo’s legend.”.

Genat : For extraterrestrials, a fabulous but hard site!

Baychon : A small hamlet with beautiful well-equipped routes. A site to fall in love with.

Sabart : The mutants’ meeting place. Entry ticket at 6c, mostly 8a. The 9a is legendary…
