Crag features

Packed with quality routes, and with a sense of scale often lacking in roadside sport climbing, Bellecombe is a gem of a crag that has something for everyone. The three pitch Grande Arête is an obvious line to go at, and if you're up for some run-out 6b+ crack climbing, have a go at Dulf while you're at it.

The crag faces south, and gets plenty of sun, though the starts are shady when the sun is low. Due to its exposed position, it's not an ideal venue when it's cold and the wind is blowing.

Approach notes

From Bellecombe-Tarendol, take the second unmarked unsurfaced track on the right when leaving the town in a northerly direction. Soon the crag is in full view. Park at a small layby on the left, opposite a track leading down to a river crossing. Follow this to the start of Grande Arête. For the rest of the routes, a maintained path leads up along the base. To get the Upper Tier, follow the steep path past all the lower sectors, then follow fixed ropes left across the face.
