description

A slabby sector of about 15m height, with routes from F3 to F7a. A wide flat area at the foot of the easy section, (called Walt Disney), makes it suitable for children.
A vertical sector with routes from 6b to 8a (with some routes "sculptured").
Possible to climb here in mid-summer.

Remarks

Loses the sun around 15 to 16.00hrs.
Can be very hot in the morning in the middle of summer.
Great views of the Aravis range
The site has been mainly equipped by the Grand Bornard guides, who use it a lot in summer.

pedestrian access

From the parking follow the obvious path which leads in 5 mins to the lower sector.
