Ceüse

The goddess of the cliffs, majestic and mythical!

"This is Céüse, the winner of Miss Limestone's election, with her finely chiselled tiara and her perfect and pure lines, she is, in all simplicity, the queen of the cliffs, it has invented everything, it has everything. Gray slabs divinely carved, ocher tones studded with holes, inimitable bluish walls where one loses the sense of verticality ... All spread over a sublime limestone ribbon and compact 4 km long, in a frame beautiful overlooking the Oisans and other mountains in the area. " (Source: grimper.com)

This massif takes on its full dimension at the foot of the village of Sigoyer. While in 1890, ravines and scree were the only landscape of the massif, a very beautiful 1900-hectare national forest, entirely inhabited by man, now offers a green landscape. A majestic rocky cliff, world famous among climbers, rises in a semi-circle around the forest, revealing on the other side a vast plateau of meadows.

Here is one of the most difficult routes in the world: "Biography". Extreme way and very difficult. It is the first 9a+ in history, equipped and baptized by Jean-Christophe Lafaille.

Céüse is also classified in Natura 2000 zone.
