Approach 1hr

From Chamonix go towards Martigny over the Col des Montets and turn off onto a little road on the left 2kms before the Swiss border leading to the little village of Baberine. Park on the right just after the turn off and before the first bend, as there is no parking in the village
Pass through the lovely village of Baberine with its fountain, them 50m before the EDF cable car, leave the road by a path that goes up the true right bank of the valley, through forest and then turns off, (cairns), up a path on scree to the foot of the routes. See photo for the start of the route.

L3 4a Belay shared with "Ça se discute"
L4 4a Belay shared with "Ça se discute"

(To make the route more consistent in the grade, it is possible to start with the first 4 pitches of "Ça se discute" (5a,5a,5b,5c). This is just to the left, (hangars "Italy" slightly corroded).

L5 5b Slabs separated by steeper walls without much in the way of handholds.
L6 5c Start up a spur, then steep slabs, very nice
L7 6a Start on the right by a crack then the crux (6a) is on the slab above
L8 5c
L9 5a
L10 4c+/5a
L11 4a Linking pitch, not good climbing
L12 5b A nice rock spur to finish the route


  • Abseil down the route.
  • From the third abseil onwards, you can use the belay points on "Ça se Discute“ to the left. This line is slightly more direct, but still involves going to the right.
  • You can avoid the last abseil by walking down to the right.


  • Sun in the morning; shade in the afternoon in autumn, particularly on the part that descends through a hollow.
  • Well bolted (hangers Petzl s/s), though occasionally quite far apart.
  • Good views of the Emosson dam near the top.
