Escalade - Falaises du Conte (Céou) - Camping Maisonneuve - Castelnaud la chapelle - Dordogne

Climbing at

the Cliffs of Conte (Céou)

The Céou is a small river in which you can swim. In the surroundings there are many castles as well as other monuments to visit to occupy your stay outside times of climbing. As well as rainy days, the Nef au Céou or the Caudon Gymnasium will welcome the most motivated climbers.



However to find happiness without looking too much you must be at least a level 5b. With a level 6a-6b cliff, you will be able to climb a large part of the tracks. Very beautiful lengths for a cliff of this height: up to 40m. Relay possibilities. Surprising caves including the entrance to the “cathedral”, with really hard routes around this huge cave. Access is a bit physical but fast from the campsite.

And Security

The volunteer volunteers take turns to maintain and secure the cliff of Céou to allow a safe ascent. All this supervised by the French Federation of Mountain and Climbing. This area is frequented throughout the year by climbing enthusiasts from all over the world.
