Spectacular craging by the Mer de Glace © tony4433

Crag features

Amazing granite slabs above the Mer de Glace, overlooking the Drus and the Grands Jorasses, form a grandiose setting for this beautiful crag. All the routes seem to be well bolted and are up to 70m high. A 60m metre rope at least is essential.

Approach notes

Access from the Grotte de la Mer de Glace, below the Montenvers mountain railway station.
