BETA PHOTO: Dorenaz sector 0: low pillar from N

Description 

Reasonable-size high slab which can be top-roped, adjacent to another high face.

Straightforward hike/scramble up from the road.

Unexplored as of 2016.
No fixed anchors or lead bolts as of 2016.

top-roping: Trees at top which could be used to build anchors.
Access to top - (since the short way around left side gets into a thrash, as of 2016) - seems easiest to go way around the right end ... by first going down right to the base of the ramp, then up diagonal right on the wide grassy ramp which rises across the middle of sector 1 Gastlosen . Next bear left and scramble up to the top of the Gastlosen cliff, finally walk down (south) along the cliff edge to the top of Dorenaz.

more: There is also a separate lower part (or two) with decent-looking rock, but much smaller.

name: The June Lake Loop has long been recognized as a little visit to Switzerland. "Dorenaz" is a crag of gneiss rock in the Rhone river valley in the southwest corner of Switzerland.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Getting There 

To reach the main high part, park and start hiking up as for the high part sector 1 Gastlosen, starting South about 150 ft across the base of the low slab part of sector 1 -- but when reach the base of the wide grassy ramp, you've arrived: much of this sector is up the ramp to the right, and the remainder is up to the left.

Time + effort estimate: From north end of parking lot to the base of the main high part of this sector is about +105 vertical feet over 0.13 mile distance (+32m over 0.22km), so typical range of hiking times 5-10 minutes.

Lower part: To get to the base of the separate (smaller) lower part (or parts), when reach the base of the grassy ramp, turn Left (south) and go down a little. Access to top to build anchor for top-roping is up around the right end, first back up to the base of the ramp, then up left a little (below the left side of the base of the normal (taller) high part of this sector.
