Crag features

Bouldering Heaven hidden in the woods above Sallanches (nr Chamonix)...if you can find it!

Routes of all grades. Great spot for a picnic if family are with you. Nice and shaded by huge beach trees during hot summer days, though can be humid after rain. Just glorious.

Numbered climbs as per Les Blocs de la region de Chamonix Guidebook.

Approach notes

2 mins walk from the road.

Room for 3 or 4 cars to park.

Difficult to find...from Sallanches, follow the D1212 to Combloux. Look out for a right hand turn onto the the Route de Nant Cruy signposted to 'Cordon'. Follow this to the village of of Medonnet. Alternatively, if you miss the right hand turn, continue to Combloux from where Medonnet is signposted. Park 200m below the village at a layby (room for 3/4 cars). Walk through a small field into wood - look at bouldering Heaven and drool.

I think the comments about this being bouldering heaven are a little over the top. Many of the routes are now very, very mossy and with a lot of tree cover it is easy to see how they can stay that little bit more damp. It's a fine location, easy to reach and with some good problems but needs plenty of regular traffic.
