Hi All - I'll be in Chamonix 8/29 to 8/31 with non-climbing friends/family and looking for sport or trad multi-pitch partners. Looking for something more mellow up to 10.a sport lead but perfectly fine following up to 11.a as well. Would love to follow trad up to 10.d as well. Planning to have a rope and draws on me and possible other gear as well. Reach out if you'll be around.

Any chance of extending your stay there?
I climb in Chamonix a lot, live next to Geneva. I am available anytime. Rock, ice anything. Conditions in Alps crummy now with lots of rockfall.

I will be in chamonix aug 31 and am looking for a climbing partner as my husband who is traveling with me doesn’t climb and wants to do a solo bike ride that day. I’m comfortable leading 10s but won’t have any gear and I don’t do trad but happy to try anything on top rope.

Hi, I’m located in Geneva and I go to Cham every weekend or more. There are very few sport routes there ( that I know of). The closest is  les gaillardes Which is in town. It is very polished.
I’m going to Cham  today and can look around for other areas.

There is quite a bit of sport climbing easily accessible from Chamonix. The RockFax guidebook has plenty of info about these areas in the Valley Crags section at the end. There is also a small sport climbing area at the top of the Brévent lift (my profile picture was taken on one of these routes.)

The book is also available on Amazon. RockFax also has a phone app and website with route information, similar to Mountain Project.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
