Ablon

Haute Savoie, FRANCE

Climbs 300 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1358m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
Ablon is the biggest sport crag in the Haute Savoie, with mainly single pitch climbs averaging around 20-25m, but some multi-pitch up to around 70m.

Mostly vertical climbing, relying on technical foot-work with small hand holds. The rock is sharp and pocketed, which good hand-holds being difficult to spot, making onsighting difficult.

The best season is from May to October, and though it gets alot of sun, the altitude means it can get a little chilly!

Access notes
The crag is quite remote, which may be the reason it is not so popular with (or not so well-known to) foreign climbers.

Park at the end of the mountain road, before the fence at the sign: "Gite D'Ablon". Parking beyond this point is forbidden, unless you have a special "VIP" pass, but be prepared to be disliked by all other crag users who have had to endure the 45 minute walk!

There is a quick access from Glieres via Thorens. From Glieres descend 300m, and turn right.
