Poingt RavierSavoie, FRANCE
Climbs 95 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1426m a.s.l – Faces SE
Sector Via Feratta extends to the R of the start of the Poignt Ravier Via Feratta (surprise, surprise!) and has 26 easier routes listed here. The sector has been recently 'improved' with netting to catch any falling rocks from the VF and the ground has been levelled and gravelled. This has produced 2 of 3 metres of unweathered rock that was previously underground; hence a lot of bouldery starts that feel way harder than the overall route grade. If you can get to the first bolt you're cooking'
Sector de la Chapelle is a more extensive area of rock and as well as a small slab of easy routes has longer routes (single and twin pitch)in the slightly higher grades. The guide describes it as 'tres agreable'.
Climbs at this crag
Access is dead easy. Leave the main section of Valloire heading S to where the road crosses the river. Turn hard R and go down alongside the river. Ample roadside parking. Two minutes walk alongside the fence.
Follow signs the the VF for that sector. For la Chapelle park down by the tennis club. Short walk along a path.
