Falaise Village de L'Esseillon

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1310m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A fairly pleasant minor crag which can be combined with a visit to the impressive Fort Victor Emmanuel and the Via Ferratas on the fort and in the gorges below.

A pleasant slab with 9 easy routes and a steeper wall to the R with some harder stuff. The R hand sector was banned (2008) and lower-offs removed pending the installation of fencing to stop rockfall from the path above. Current situation unknown.

Pleasant location above a quiet village. Nearby parking and a buvette/bar on hand.

Local guide recommends helmets.

Approach notes
Leave the D1006 (main road through the valley) at either Modane to the W or Sollieres-Sardiere to the NE and follow the minor roads to Aussois. From here the Fort Victor Emmanuel is clearly signposted. Ample parking by the Fort. A path leaves the road on the first hairpin bend from the parking in the Aussois direction. Crag is a couple of hundred meters down the path
