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!

100m

1 day

Awoke to a wild and blustery day at the Britannia refuge this morning. Plans were scrapped, extra coffees were drunk and we headed down.

Finished the day with some scrambling and summits on the Perron traverse above the Emosson Dam. A day salvaged.

Fresh snow but summer temperatures on the 4000m Allalinhorn today.

It was nice to follow a track this morning. Tomorrow’s trail breaking is going to be a workout 😬

Back up in the #alpine again and enjoying the autumn weather and conditions.

Lots of rime ice on the Marbrees traverse this morning. Scottish.

Off to tick off a couple of Swiss 4000m peaks this weekend.

Perfect autumn climbing weather. Photo: @allyswinton of Sara scrambling across the Perrons yesterday. The classic rocky ridge line above the Emosson reservoir.

It’s been a mixed few days weather wise, and the original plan of climbing the Grand Paradiso was out on hold. Flexibility is the key to a happy trip :)
