description

Approach

At Bellevaux, pass in front of the town hall, and just after the church go down a little road to the end of the valley, direction "la cascade". Park before a bridge, next to a tree rope course.

Route

The canyon has three steps, getting progressively longer and harder, separated by rock pools, not always fully frozen. Firstly two steps of 6 to 10m. If the first part is not practical, climb up the snow slopes on the left to reach the last step. This is 30m high and has several possibilities between 3 and 4+. Equipped belays. Continue up one or two small walls to exit the canyon.

Descent

Exit the canyon on the right going up to an old mill. Go behind the building to reach the Frêne footpath which go down to the right to come back to the road and the foot of the canyon. It is also possible to abseil back down the canyon, (Equipped with chain belays.)

remarks

The icefall is not often fully frozen. The last step is the best and easily accessible
There are lots of belays in place. Used for canyoning in summer.

Sensitive areas
There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.
