Description 

Located in the Rhône-Alpes region. Lots of sport climbing. I only got in 4 routes in the day I was there but according to the guide book we had there are approximately 50 ranging from around 4c to 7b+ (~5.7 to 5.12c). We got there around 9:30 and were in the sun the whole time until around 3, so I can imagine it would get pretty hot in the summer. There ended up being a few other people around, but definitely not crowded.

All the anchors on the routes I climbed were single quicklinks attached to one bolt with a chain coming down from a higher bolt as a backup. It all seemed perfectly bomber and well maintained, but just something to keep in mind.

Getting There 

Make your way to Restaurant La Colombière and park. There's a trail to the left of the restaurant; take this and follow the signs to the Falaise de la Colombière.
