La Balme de Sillingy Haute Savoie, FRANCE
Climbs 75 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 550m a.s.l – Faces SW
With the addition of a new sector, right, the cliff has a good range of routes from font 5 to 8a/8b. The climbing varies from slabs to roofs, with the majority being vertical. The routes are a little less difficult in the old sector. The climbing is either technical or athletic, with small and big holds. The cliff is subject to numerous streakes after heavy rain. The sun hits the rock about 11 h 15 in winter time. The site is a bit noisy due to the proximity of the road and motocross on weekends.
10 km NW of Annecy. Take the N508 (Frangy - Annecy), at La Balme-de-Sillingy take NNW direction for 100 m, turn right a small road that leads to the cemetery.
Follow the path for 5 minutes, the cliff is visible on the left. 10 minute of approach.

Quite a nice crag. Very accessible. However quite a lot of loose rock when I visited in April. Pulled a hold off and had saw several other climbers around us knowing bits off. A helmet probably advisable!|
