Sites d’escalade de Larses et Barmus


74190 Passy

How do I get there?


Limestone sites, where the climbing is mainly on slabs, with adhesions and crimps. Superb view of the Mont-Blanc massif. Difficulty: from 4b to 6b+ for Larses and from 5b to 7a for Barmus.

South facing cliff, dries very quickly.

For children, the ground is stony and a little chaotic, but without a dangerous ravine. Well equipped routes to start in the lead.

Topo "Vallée de l'Arve" by Gilles Brunot, published by the EKIPROC association, which finances the purchase of equipment for the opening of new routes and the re-equipment of old routes on part of Haute-Savoie (part covered by the topos published by EKIPROC).
