Highs & Lows

Three major climbing sites with major landscapes in one of the best climbing areas in the world.

These sites are demanding and a minimum level of climbing is required.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Maybe do more days off to rest the arms and therefore extend the trip to be able to climb in more different places.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    The cloud/rain at the Presles’s route. Very hard to finish with those conditions.

  • How was the food?

    We ate only our own food at the truck. But I really recommend you to try the local mountain specialities : fondu savoyarde, raclette, tartiflette... very rich, full of cheese and charcuterie but it will comfort you after a hard day climbing !

  • Packing tips?

    The packing is really important because we were staying far from the civilisation, without reel possibilities to do shopping. So it’s really necessary to think about everything in particular about food and drinks. But also about climbing and camping material.

  • Transportation Tips?

    For climbing trip like that it’s hard to do something better that with your own truck. Because ne need to figure out the accommodation, and you are directly at the bottom of the route.
