The left side of Le Gros Caillou

Description 

Mostly short, slabby sport routes near the village of La Joux. South facing, but plenty of shade and a nice bubbling brook nearby.

La Joux means "the forest" in the Savoy dialect, and with great views of Mont Blanc, an easy approach, and climbs for every difficulty, this is a good place for families.

Getting There 

From the train stop, head up the hill toward the village, then turn right down a dirt road. Follow the trail signs to get on the Petit Balcon Sud and follow it northeast to an intersection with a trail sign for climbing on the left. (10 minutes from the village)

If you take the train here (which is easy), note that they only stop on request!

Climbing Season

Start with a powerful overhanging roof-ish move. Plan your feet carefully and it's not as hard as it first appears. Do a committing move to the next bolt. Then easy terrain past a few more bolts to the top anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
