Description

Nice sector with 3 easy routes. Access is not so easy and the 2 routes closer to the cascade can be quite wet if it has rained some days before.

Access issues inherited from France

As of 2020, some privately owned climbing areas may have restricted access. Check with https://www.ffme.fr/

Approach

park in the 2nd U turn when driving from Bourg d'oisans toward Villard notre dame. The walking path is in the "U" turn. Once on top of the cascade, abseil down on the left side of it, through "les delices de notre dame".

Ethic inherited from France

Park where indicated, take care of the environment, buy the local guidebook when possible (this is one of the ways you can help local route setters), clean up your shoes before climbing, don't spray beta, be polite.

Check https://www.gouvernement.fr/en/coronavirus-covid-19 for COVID-19 restrictions currently in place.
