    The Mont Chauffé has several sectors:
    South face on the Abondance side: Piliers, Faille, Plagne du Mont, Raille, Ferraillon, Traversée.
    These sectors present, on a limestone rock, interesting and practicable routes of one or more lengths distributed on several cliffs of difficulties 4 b to 8 a; 168 routes from 20 to 450 meters. Access on foot can be made from the le Sauvage car park or the Côtes au Mont car park, the first routes are accessible in about 15 minutes’ walk. The Piliers and Plagne du Mont sectors are well suited to children.
