From the entrance of the Arve valley (Le Fayet) to the Swiss border, there are many training crags with different level of difficulties for the rock climbers.
The guidebook " Crag climbs in Chamonix" from François Burnier and Dominique Potard gives a list and information on each site.
Some bouldering sites have been developed such as les Houches, les Bossons, le Lavancher, Argentière, le col des Montets.
Topo is available in our office.
