Les Diablerets is the highest mountain in the Swiss Canton of Vaud. Its summit provides an excellent viewpoint for almost all of the principal peaks in the Western Alps. Although the usual approach has been somewhat spoilt by the Glacier 3000 lift installations, parts of the mountain still retain a distinctly remote feel.
Legend has it that the rock faces that surround the village of Les Diablerets were dangerous, and an occasional home to the devil. Several peaks make up the massif, so this legend may account for the name of the mountain, literally meaning 'little devils'.
The rock faces themselves provide single and multi-pitch climbs, as well as two via ferrata.
