Natural paraclimbing wall
The first no frontiers climbing wall in the world: equipped with a tactile map, so that also the blind or visually impaired can understand the development of 6 climbing routes, the number and type of bolts, as well as the level of difficulty. A braille plaque at the base of the wall provides information on routes. And to facilitate access there is a car park exclusively reserved for the disabled and a new approach route with smooth road surface and hand-drag. Finally, the area is fitted out with innovative tables and benches designed to accommodate wheelchairs as well as bathroom facilities for the disabled. Inaugurated in 2011 by the competitors in the first World Paraclimbing Championship.
