Crag features

Nice roadside beginner's area.

One natural watercourse and a large single pitch man made ice wall, barely 100m from the car park on the left hand side of the river (looking up valley), and three natural ice falls 100m or so up the valley by the Sainte Chapellle on the right hand side of the river. 


Approach notes

Drive through Les Contamines-Montjoie and keep going out the other side to the roundabout at the end of the road (in winter), next to the Church giving the crag its name. Park here (or further back in one of the ski car parks if full) and follow the footpath up valley about 100m untill the ice wall comes into view. acces the base by crossing over a small footbridge. The top rope anchors can be accesed by taking the uphill footpath imediately out of the small car park.
