View of Le Vuache, the mountain across from Leaz


This limestone crag is found near the town of Léaz overlooking the Rhône river. It has somewhere around 50 climbs ranging in grade from very easy to about 5.12. The popular climbs tend to be highly polished rendering them a bit harder than they may have been initially.

Getting There 

Take the national road 206 until you arrive in Léaz. Take the main road into Leaz and pass the church. When the main road ends continue on a gravel road until you come to a parking lot overlooking the Rhone. To get to the cliffs from here you can follow the path up the hill (past some ruins with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top) and then down to the base of the cliffs.

Deceptive and pumpy French limestone climbing! Hidden holds make this route doable. Overhanging moves below a high first bolt lead to thin sidepulls with tricky feet, and a great dynamic move to get through the roof. Careful going to the anchor -- there are no bolts above the roof!
