I'm lucky enough to have to stay in Annecy for a while over summer in order to do a bit of research for my degree. My supervisor has kindly agreed to let me take my climbing gear with me, so I am wondering what are the most worthwhile routes to get on. I've bought the local guide (https://www.escalade-74.com/topos/topo_49falaises.htm) which is pretty good but is (as you'd expect) in French so I would need to go through and translate each route individually as my French isn't great. It also doesn't give any stars so is quite hard to determine what may be good at a glance.. 

Grade-wise I'd be keen on anything up to 7a(+), with  Le Biclop being the most local crag to where I'm staying.

Cheers

Cameron

Spent a day on the linked route, rather pleasant with fine looking routes either side.

Struggling to remember which guidebook I used.

I had a weeks holiday near Annecy in October 2016 and used that guidebook. We visited a different crag each day and we thought Ablon was the best  Ablon    Superb crag (over a km long) in a very beautiful location. Only downside is that it has quite a long walk in - 45mins if you find the quickest track (we got lost). A bike would be useful.
