DescriptionThis is rock above sectors 1-9, which normally would be incorporated into a multi-pitch "adventure" route.
Which has been at least once, in August 2016.
--> See report below under Comments.
Also some sections of nice climbing can be reached by traversing in from the side, especially the north side -- and climbed independently as single pitch.
--> See under Highlights.
There is a large talus area between the top of sectors 1-9 below and the bottom of sector Grépon. The bad thing about this is that is disrupts the continuity of most full bottom-to-top multi-pitch routes. The good thing is that any route in lower sectors 1-9 can be linked with any route in the upper sector Grépon.
name: Just as we recognize the June Lake Loop as a little visit to Switzerland, so we feel the rock of Rush as a taste of the famous granite of Chamonix Mont Blanc in France . . .
"Grépon" is for the Aiguille du Grepon (or just "le Grepon"), which towers high over both the Envers region and the main Chamonix valley. Its summit can be reached by multi-pitch granite routes from both sides.
warning: The rock in this area has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
