Le Château Polonais
Le Château Polonais was first bolted by two Polish climbers in 2016, and 13 more routes were added by others as recently as 2019. All routes are quite new, so they will almost certainly benefit from more traffic. Climbing is demanding, balancy, and technical, on edges and crimps. Most routes are on slightly inclined or vertical rock, but there are also some amazing vertical tufa columns, and, occasionally, upper sections on tufas and overhangs.
Le Jardin Publique
Le Jardin Publique is a smooth, vertical orange wall rising to a height of 35 meters. The climbing is technical, on a slab and wall with some overhanging exits or extensions in the mid-section of the cliff. Look out, though, for loose rock on some routes—better cleaning is needed. Furthermore, the bolting can be runout on occasion. Grades are mostly in the 7a to 7b+ range.
