Rock climbing is a sport that’s available to all ages and experience to enjoy, and here in Chamonix there are literally hundreds of Trad climbing and Sport climbing routes to discover, plenty of which you can accomplish in one day.
Test your mettle on some of the long alpine routes on Chamonix’s iconic towers and spikes, which will involve an overnight stay in a mountain refuge, or one of the more accessible multi-pitch routes that you can reach via the lifts or trains in the valley. There are plenty of crags for sport climbing along the length of the valley too, which are typically snow free from May onwards. They tend to be lower in elevation from a few hundred metres to 2000m elevation.
If you’re relatively new to climbing or wat to develop more autonomous climbing skills, then hire a local guide and learn from their vast experience of the local area and mountain knowledge. Contact us
