Description

The Perrons of Vallorcine are a series gneiss peaks located directly North of Chamonix exactly following the Swiss-French border. This mountain range is home to a number of moderate multi-pitch sport routes and trad climbs.

Getting There

To get to the Perrons from the parking lot near the Lac d'Emosson dam. Follow the road across the dam. Follow the path for about 500 m at which point you will follow the signs to Chalet de Loria. The trail will be marked with yellow blazes and continues up and down. The difficult sections are equipped with metal steps, chains, and bars to make the hike easier. After about an hour, Grand Perron will come into view on your right.

There's also a popular ridge traverse of Les Perrons de Vallorcine. In either direction, it requires a rope for multiple rappels. Jun 21, 2017
