About Castillon:

Castillon is a limestone cliff, 15 km north of Menton and Monte-Carlo, near the french-italian border.
This crag offers around 40 sport routes, short and overhanging (under 25m), between 6b and 8c+, mainly set by two climbers : Philippe Maurel and Axel Franco. Hard routes are set there, like Mass Destruction (8a) or Mortal Kombat (7c+), both open by Franco.
Avoid it in summer time, due to the altitude (only 450m - 1500ft) and orientation (south-west).

Nearest town or city: Menton and Sospel
From Menton (a city located between Monte-Carlo and the border), drive North to Sospel on road D2566. Park on the way of an old quarry after a hairpin turn near a bridge (called Viaduc du Caramel) before Castillon. Walk down the road to the beginning of the curve and look for the path on the left. Walk from 2 to 15 minutes acoording to the sections of rouets.
