Lou Pitchoun is an engaged descent, but for those who master the high verticals and the management of their friction, the last 45 m abseil, in cobweb with a view overlooking the sea, remains a great canyoning time.

For all the descents in that massif, we strongly recommend the wearing of trousers because some passages of the approach and return walks can be filled with brush.

Also note that the last section of the semaphore road, from the barrier, is unfortunately private. So we indicate a path that leaves the road quickly.

At the end of the approach walk, you arrive at a slightly marked ravine full of bushes. A little further on the left bank are the first equipments that avoid the thorny bushes.

The first abseil leads to a point that allows a handline. We then come to a steep cliff where it will be necessary to identify the intermediate relay to pass the next obstacle with little friction. Possibility at this level to escape on the left bank

Then you find an abseil of several small barriers to reach the finest obstacle: the 45 m abseil in cobweb. The first meters follow the wall then the cliff starts receding,the shore emerges clearly, and being suspended in these majestic surroundings reserve so many sensations!

For the return, go through the visible corridor to the left, go to the large green oaktree where a permanent rope can be used to climb a 5 to 6 m cascade. Arriving at a palmtree, go right along the wide ledge up to the villa. Otherwise, before climbing the rope, you can go right through the ledge of the Grand Ducs, a more aerial and technical way.
