Boasting great views out over the Mediterranean, the cap offers plenty of high-quality options to climb.

A bit farther afield, Mercantour National Park is also home to some excellent rock climbing opportunities. At 3,143 meters in elevation, Cime du Gélas is an especially popular destination for climbing enthusiasts.
