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.

What a cool route! The rock on this is wavy and offers lots of interesting holds. There are some fissures that go almost the entire length of the pitch and offer good foot jamming and just fun movement. A few of the bolts are a little spaced but nothing too scary....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
