Bouldering in Targassone, France

Targasonne is a world-renowned boulder field and is considered one of the best bouldering areas in Southern Europe. It is located near Puigcerdà in the Catalan Pyrenees. The sharp granite of Targasonne provides a climbing experience for climbers of all skill levels, from lowballs for children to highballs with world-class lines. The main attraction is the physical moves over sharp crimps and slopers. The boulders are scattered throughout the hills on both sides of the road, providing an easy and family-friendly approach with stunning views of the mountains. The area is also renowned for its ski slopes and stunning summits, which rise to over 3,000 meters.
