The crossing the Mugel, half walking half climbing, offers a unique perspective on the Bec de l'Aigle and is one of the longest journey of these soubeyrannes cliffs.

An experienced climber can do the loop "cove Figuerolles - cove Mugel" in 2 hours. A group will easily take three hours, especially if you enjoy the psychobloc of the Devil's Hole.

A departure from the creek of Mugel is also a good option to enjoy the ample parking (€ 1 hour approx).

You then join the first difficulties, either through the park to the Anse du Sec, either through the creeks by a path along the coast. You will find some bouldering passages in level 6-7, sometimes overhanging, an opportunity for good climbers to have some fun before the long journey that gradually change from 5 to 3.

Once past the Cap de l'Aigle, two hundred meter walk waiting for you under the tortured walls of Bec de l'Aigle, in a unique mineral environment of its kind

A steeper passage where you will take the height will ask your attention, before arriving at Anse of Gaméou where the things get tough with a hole to pass in opposition followed by 100 meters of climbing oscillating between 5 and 6.

At the very bottom of the cove, you can decide to leave the course and join Avenue des Myrtilles via the small hole on your right and a climb in level 3.

Otherwise, a splash and you join the Devil's hole and you climb to the Creek of Figuerolles.

Provide sufficiently comfortable shoes for walking and avoid the visit when the wind is strong.
