Petit Bargy is a large limestone dome full of large cavernous holes and bridges. This face (the NNW face) has many climbs on it. It is also possible to hike up the path from the West to the summit.

Getting There 

On the route to Col de la Columbiere towards Cluses, take the first road on the right a bit after the Blanzi round-about going in the direction of "Les Bottes". Follow this road until the end where there will be a parking. To reach the mountain, follow a road (used by off-road vehicles) until you reach Lake Benit. To the left of the lake is a path which leads to the majority of climbs. To the right of the lake is the normal hiking path to the summit.
