The Cliff is located on the other side of the lake and stream running from it, on the north end a fixed Tyrolean traverse a bit south from the dam.
Even though it sports many sport routes, the area's ethics emphasizes Trad climbing, don't expect to find bolts when trad pro will fit.
Belays are equipped with bolts and chains, don't top-rope directly off the chains or glue ins, don't lower off the glue-ins, avoid lowering off the chains (rap if you can), on popular routes, don't hog the bolts and chain ends (leave them free for people descending). Gear
60m single rope is ok, though it might be tight on some raps. Bring a full range rack from multiple small cams and nuts to larger pieces.
A metal sheath pulley or steel biner is useful for getting across the river's 1/2" steel cable. Parking
Use the first parking lot, Parking is $6.00 you can always carpool in Saint-Alban if you want.
A year pass for a car has now dropped to $25.00.
