description

Approach

From Prétairié folow the summer route for the Tavaneuse lake. The icefalls are visible just before arriving at the chalets, at about 1650 m.
Cascades
From left to right :
∙ At the beginning of the season there is a small area with several columns of 4-5m under a rock overhang. Later in the season , ice forms on the lower part also, giving an icefall ofabout 40m, grade 3-4 if there is not to much snow.
∙ 15-20 m in two steps, less steep than the first area, but wider. (Access by abseilling from some bushes or from below via a snow ramp.) Very good for practising technique. The wall can be upto 35m in conditions and without too much snow. Grade 3/3+.
∙ A small icefall sometimes forms in a little enclosed ravine.
∙ Amother small icefall, grade 3, sometimes forms.
