[Text translated from French, as found in the topo]
The blockfield of the Salève offers historical boulders: L'Alpinodrome, la Petite Carrière, le Petit Valaisan and La Dalle au Soleil, boulders which have witnessed the passage of generations of climbers, as demonstrated by the polished holds!!! Thanks to a group of passionate climbers, "new style" boulders have been developed. This topo is the next logical step.
The blockfield of the sector of Le Coin is particularly important, and not all of the boulders are documented; however, black arrows painted onto the rock show almost every line.
Some less popular boulders may become covered in moss and vegetation. A bit of a brush and the boulder will be as good as new.
- Black arrows painted onto the boulders give the positions of the hands and the direction of the line.
- Only use a metallic brush to remove lichen; do not chip or modify holds.
The landings in the blockfield are rarely good! It is your responsability to protect landings with crashpads, attentive spotters or even with a rope, namely on the highballs [there are bolts at the top of the tall boulders (TN)]
