A good route, not too serious on the W face of the Grande Roche de Tré la Tête, using a line of slabs up chamois territory.

Approach 20min

From the Tré la Tête refuge, initially follow the path to the Conscrits hut. Leave this to the N (several possible faint paths) and climb the grassy mound coming down from the Grande Roche (2100m). Go up N to the foot of the face, (vague path,) above a mass of boulders. The route starts at some nice slabs of green rock.


P1 5b 30m Diagonally to the left.
P2 6a 35m A move of 6a to start.
P3 5c 35m 5c to start t, then 4/5
Reach the start of pitch 4 by a 30m abseil to the left down a little gully. Belay on a grassy ledge to the left of a huge rock table leaning against the cliff.
P4 5c 40m
P5 6a 35m Start up directly to the first bolt then traverse left under the overhang .
P6 4b 35m Straight up, crossing bands of vegetation.
P7 5b+ 35m
P8 6a 40m Bypass the overhang on the left
Reach the summit in 5min (+70m).


-Either abseil back down the route, last two abseils taking a different line. (See guidebook for the Vallée de l'Arve).
-Or walk of to the N for 100m to join a good path (cairns), which leads S to join the Conscrits hut path at about 2275m.


The route is well bolted, spaced in the easier sections, close together for the 6a moves, (which go at 5c/A0.)
Lots of slab climbing on good rock.
All the stances equipped with two bolts and a chain and are on comfortable, grass ledges.
Often a long distance between the last bolt and the belay, (slippy in climbing shoes.)
"Gribouille" means a simpleton.
