The area around Lou Messugo is an adrenalin junkie's dream. We are close to mountains, gorges, fast-flowing rivers and rock faces all screaming out to be climbed, jumped off, slithered down, scrambled over and enjoyed to the full - if you like that kind of thing!Just 10 minutes away, at the end of one of our favourite walks, there's a small but popular and reasonably challenging natural rock face set up for climbing called la Bagarée. Beautifully located right by the Loup river, the area was redone a few years ago so the anchors and bolts are in good condition. It has 123 routes from beginners to advanced. Climbing friends assure me it's a fun place to climb and my brother makes a beeline for there each time he visits. I'm not a climber but he is and he takes my boys and his twins regularly.
