During winter, La Turbie south facing cliffs are among the best in Alpes Maritimes! With sun almost all the day and good temperatures, you’ll have a perfect day of climbing. The area of La Turbie located over Monaco and Cap d’Ail has many good spots for winter and the view on the sea is amazing! It’s one of the best places in French Riviera and only half an hour from Nice.

This time, we went to Les Surplombs, an old sector in wich many new routes have been added on the left during the last years. These new routes have very safe bolting and it’s a very good place to go with all the family or beginners. The easier and shorter routes are on the left of the sector.


Time to warm up for Isabelle!

You need to open your eyes very well in order to find the best holds!

Holding on your knot can help you for the balance but you needn’t much strength with your rope attached to your harness…

For a good precision, you must watch carefully your feet until they are put on the rock

A good place for the « pique-nique »

After having climbed all day in Les Surplombs, we decided to finish that day with abseiling initiation in the Prussik area.
