Get Your Climbing Kicks by Cragging in Chamonix


 
Travel & Tourism
Summer is the time for adventure. If you don’t want to embark on a two-day expedition but still want to experience the thrill of having your heart pounding and your blood pumping, climbing in Chamonix could be the perfect activity for you.

There are several types of climbing on offer, but cragging is often considered to be one of the most challenging forms of outdoor ascension. Even more exhilarating than alpine climbing or mountaineering, cragging is a great sport for adrenaline seekers.

What is Cragging?

Cragging involves climbing a crag, or a steep and rugged piece of rock that juts out. It is basically a more challenging version of indoor wall climbing, as the route is natural formed (so more uneven and vulnerable to the elements).  Unlike mountaineering, there is no destination for the climb. The goal is simply to go up and down a rock face in a single day or less. Cragging has become a popular alternative form of climbing in Chamonix. There are several great places where you can give it a go.

Where to Go Cragging

  • Gaillands
Gaillands is the perfect place to go climbing. In Chamonix, it is the preferred town crag, with dozens of spectators gathering round to watch the daredevils who are bold enough to take the challenge. Begin the day by practicing on the easier grades, acquiring the correct technique and skills. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can really put yourself to the test and attempt climbing the hardest grade in Chamonix, a 7b.
  • Servoz
This is a jutting roadside crag that features routes of varying difficulty, making climbing in Chamonix accessible to most aficionados out there. While you’re learning the ropes, start off on a grade 3 route and slowly work your way up towards the harder levels. If you conquer a 6b route, you’ll have proven your prowess and can reward yourself with a well-deserved refreshing beer from the bar opposite.
  • Vallorcine
Vallorcine boasts some of the toughest crags in the area. They are best enjoyed in the early morning, before the sun starts hitting the granite rocks. Climbing in Chamonix is not suitable for beginners everywhere, as Vallorcine’s cragging routes start at a grade 4. With the easiest routes already being quite tough, you should be ready to conquer a grade 6b by the end of the day.
