About Seynes:

Seynes is a major sport climbing area in Southern France, in the Gard department, north of the city of Nîmes. This crag is made of a long limestone cliff, south facing, but windy nonetheless when the north wind is blowing hard. Bolted, a 70 m rope is enough for the 375 routes. The access never exceeds 15 minutes from the road.
Nearest town or city: Alès, Bagnols-sur-Cèze
Directions: The crag is between Alès to the west and Bagnols-sur-Cèze to the east. From Bagnols, drive eastwards on D6, take the second crossroads towards the village of Seynes, but do not enter the village. The crag is over the small road parallel to the main route D6. The parking areas are along this small road.
Latitude, Longitude: 44.11683, 4.26270
Access Issues: Its access has been sensible during the year 2006 but the situation is normal again thanks to the huge work of the "Fédération Française de Montagne et d'Escalade". But some access issues remain : from the sections « José » to « Top secret », please ONLY use the path going up to the section called « Nouveau Monde ». If not, as the crag is on private properties, its access could be forbidden again. Please be respectful.
Sidenote : don't leave anything valuable in your car, you are in SOuth France...
When to Climb: Autumn Spring Winter
Quantity of Climbs: Year
