From Samoens, drive northwards, direction Les Allemands, up the left hand side of the valley, (true right bank), past some hairpins to a car park on the right, at 997m, (0.5km before Les Allemands). From the parking follow the path to the chalets du Crêt and continue traversing to reach the cliff. Continue past the overhanging section of single pitch climbs to reach a dirty slab with bolts. The main slab is just visible 40m higher up.
L# | 4b | | Climb the slab, starting on the right, (5b start on the left) to reach the first of two ledges with trees. Belay L#~ Go to the line of bolts at the end of an easy traverse leftwards, just to the right of some trees. L# | 5b | | Strenuous move, but well protected, then easier to the belay, L# | 5c | | A steep and strenuous start, (impressive) but with good handholds and then 30m of very pleasant friction climbing. L# | 4b | | Rising traverse rightwards on friction.
Abseil down in a direct line from the last belay.
The easiest route on this very pleasant limestone slab
