the main cascade as seen from the bottom of pitch 1 © Webster
Large ephemeral seepage icefalls which litter the cliffs above the Viaduc sainte-marie and the Les Houches dechetterie. well sort after climbs which dont form every year, but are very popular when they do! Can be viewed on the drive in and out of the Chamonix valley.
Approach either from the Gare SNCF Les Houches or the road to the Dechetterie off of the autoroute Blanche. The guide book suggests parking at the train station and walking along the route sous les crets, but this road is blocked, and requires some fence hopping. this is still possible if you are using public transport, but it is far easier to approach by car as if driving to the dechetterie, and parking directly below the ice fall.
The road to the dechetterie is closed after 5.30pm. be carefull you dont get stuck on the wrong side of the gate.
