Description

Nice sector with slab routes below the Montenvers train station. Routes are long and should split up into 2 pitches.

Guide book: Vallée de Chamonix - Sites d'escalade Crag Climbs in Chamonix, F.Burnier, D.Potard, Vamos, 2019 (new 2022)

Access issues inherited from France

Some privately owned climbing areas may have restricted access. Check with https://www.ffme.fr/

Approach

from the train station follow the path down in direction of the ice cave. At the lower lift station go behind the wooden hut. Traverse horizontal then up ~50m along cables (first one hangs loose, do follow it down!). step further over blocks away from the lift station to an open slab wall. The routes start from a big ledge a bit up the wall. To get there you should secure an easy short pitch (grade 3, 2 bolts) up. The routes starts each with 2 bolts.

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.
