Crag features

This is the large crag well down and to the left of the Emosson Dam, when looking up from Barberine. At the moment it has four routes (though M Piola started one years before the others were climbed... unfortunately he can't remember where it is!)

NOTE: Beware if climbing here in the spring - large wet-snow avalanches frequently sweep over the crag from the (hidden) névés above.

Approach notes

Leave your car at the ENTRANCE to the village of Barberine, ie just off the main road - don't park in the village. Walk through the village to a prominent L hand bend some 50m before a small telepherique building. A clearly signed footpath heads straight on towards tha Col du Passet. Follow this to where it starts to zig zag just next to the crag of Passet du Haut, then strike up leftwards, at a cairn, to the crag. An easy hour.

Volunteer to moderate La Grande Falaise du Passet
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
