the rock climbing centre for the ariège pyrenees
The magical Chaos of Targassonne has achieved recognition
as one of France's best bouldering sites (only possibly second to Font)
. The number of blocks, density, variety, potential, and the beauty of
the site has started to draw in the world's stars. The site, remaining
a local secret for a long time, has been under development for ten years
under the influence of Phil Gondoux in particular. The rock is coarse
granite. To date, 900 problems are open, from very easy for the kids to
very hard (Psoass Hole 8b).
It is hard to exaggerate the beauty and the quality of the site: best is to go there...
1½ hrs from La Forge.
(Snow cover likley December to April.)
