Route description:

The friendliest rock climbing crag in the Chamonix valley, with a large number of rock climbs both single and multi pitch.

The climbs are all bolted and south facing so therefore dry quickly after rain. There are also a large number of very easy climbs that are suitable for “big boot” climbing whatever the weather. It can get hot and busy in mid summer, although there are some shady spots on the harder climbs.

In short, a great training venue, and one that we use regularly on all our trips, especially as there's a good cafe in the car park!

Beginner – Intermediate. No experience required.

Length (in metres):

100m

Time/duration:

1 day

Starting point/base:

Chamonix

Maximum guide ratio:

1:6

Up early to catch the frozen snow, and a bonus sunrise on the 4327m Nadelhorn.

Perfect conditions, and super quiet. We’re back here on the 30th August if anyone’s keen....?

All six of us to the top of #montblanc yesterday - great weather and conditions.

We even hung out at the summit for a while, a rare treat!

Thanks also to @claphamski for guiding.

Our next Mont Blanc trip starts today with the Grand Paradiso. Let’s hope this weather lasts 🤞

Managed to sneak onto the summit of the Grand Paradiso between two days of unsettled and stormy weather.

A little trail breaking was required. All good prep for #montblanc - we’re heading that way tomorrow.
