Roche au Diable    

  • Author: Bart van Raaij

From Larchant, follow the road in direction of La Dame Jouanne for 1km and park in the Éléphant car park. Walk back in the direction of Larchant. About 200m before the cemetary take a path in the slope, leading to a cave (La Grotte de l'Ermite; the former dwelling of a tramp called "Dédé Martin"). Only one huge boulder (and the ledge of the plateau) can be found in this small sector. A dozen of problems have been opened, half of them being traverses starting from the right of the boulder and exiting more or less quickly according to their difficulty.
