Les Petites Jorasses is a small cliff in the town of Vizille, near Grenoble. It is limestone with a height rising to about 25m. Routes are all bolted, with names and grades in small metal plaques bolted to the cliff at the base of each route.

There is a nice field area along the base, with a few trees for shade and it is a pleasant area for picnics or a family outing.

As there are some quite easy routes, this would be a fine crag for learning to climb or learning to lead sport climbing.

Access issues

ATTENTION! Due to a landslide this crag was CLOSED in 2013. Climbing is still prohibited (last checked: 2016).


2 minutes.

Park of Route D'Uriage (D524), then walk up Impasse Lesdiguieres to where it turns right, and go through the gate/door (was painted green in 2008) into the field. Cliff should be obvious on the left after a short bit.
