Crag features

Ablon is the biggest sport crag in the Haute Savoie, with mainly single pitch climbs averaging around 20-25m, but some multi-pitch up to around 70m.
Mostly vertical climbing, relying on technical footwork with small hand holds. The rock is sharp and pocketed, which good hand-holds being difficult to spot, making onsighting difficult.

The best season is from May to October, and though it gets a lot of sun, the altitude means it can get a little chilly!

Approach notes

The crag is quite remote, which may be the reason it is not so popular with (or not so well-known to) foreign climbers.

Park at the end of the mountain road, before the fence at the sign: 'Gite d'Ablon'. Parking beyond this point is forbidden, unless you have a special VIP pass, but be prepared to be disliked by all other crag users who have had to endure the 45 minute walk!
