Altitude 604m a.s.l
Limestone terrace situated high above the Saleve quarry on a long balcony, with views over Geneva and the lake. Climbing from 4a to 8a, with the highest concentration of climbs between 6b to 7a. Routes up to about 30m height, mostly single pitch. Some routes are a bit polished (no surprise there) but there're lot of nice climbs here. New development has been going on at the far right end of the crag also.

Access by road: drive to Monnetier village on the back side of the Saleve. Head to the church in the centre of the village (there's some parking behind it). First routes are about ten minutes walk from the car. Follow the old Funicular track (Chemin de Funiculaire), Keep going straight at the end of the path which will skirt round the left side house with a swimming pool. Keep going on a path through the forest (not very clear) that will skirt around the side of the hill until you reach the crag
- You can also access from Geneva by heading for the douane (customs) at Veyrier, cross the railway track and turn left on Chemin du Bois Meriguet. Signs indicate the walking path up to Monnetier.
- Nice, as you can just bike from Geneva and avoid the traffic madness! (about 1 hour from Geneva centre to the crag)
