Fissure d'Ailefroide © Chris Craggs

Crag features

The cliff is a huge dome of quality granite with a popular set of climbs that see a lot of traffic in the hot season. The striking crack-line on the Fissure needs a rack, but the rest of the routes are fully bolted.

Most people only climb the first pitches, so it can get congested on the belays if you are going on to do the top pitches.

Despite its northerly outlook this crag still receives a lot of sun due to its very slabby nature. Nonetheless, even in June, you can find a large snowbank under the slab - not difficult to cross and probably allows you to avoid the cruxes of some of the routes!

Approach notes

From the southeast corner of the campsite, cross the bridge, turn right and follow a good path along the riverside. After 200m a track branches left towards the cliff.
