Climbing Limestone, Mont Blanc region

Limestone climbing around the Mont Blanc region

 A five day course, €1750. Fee is for one person alone or shared between two.


Beautiful climbing! beautiful views! And often the opportunity to see some wildlife.

In the pre-alps surrounding Mont Blanc, there are some very good quality limestone cliffs, such as:
Col de la Colombiere, Le Sapey, Les Aravis, Gramusset, Les Grandes Suites and Ablon all in France. In Switzerland, Leysin is well worth a visit. The rock is of equal quality to cliffs in the South of France, with here the advantage that you can climb in mid summer, the temperatures don’t get as high as in the south!
