Climbing - Les Chavants (Les Houches)

This small crag is beside a meadow with nice picnic areas nearby. It’s easily accessible, and there are 11 bolted routes from easy (3c) to intermediate (5c) level. A 50m rope will be sufficient for all routes (the longest being 22m).

Coming from Chamonix, go through the village of les Houches following the signs for the Prarion Gondola. Turn right at the roundabout just opposite the gondola, and you will see the parking area 200m on your right. Walk across the meadow to reach the crag.

The routes from left to right as you face the crag are graded as follows:
3c – 3c – 3c – 4b – 5b – 3c – 4b – 4b – 5b – 5c – 5c
