From Annecy, take the road to La Roche sur Foron, and turn rigt to Villaz, then take direction Aviernoz. Follow road sign to go to the Anglettaz chalet. Park as high as possible (variable depending on the season). From the Anglettaz parking take the left path along the small valley to a small pass. From this pass follow the trail that descends on the right to fit into the forest. Continue this trail for 200 meters then after the first great ascent find a small trail on the left that leads to the cave (20/25 min from the parking).

The lines

8m, 25m, 30m, …

Where ?

The 8m is just above the cave (foreground in photo), the other two are at the highest one in front and one behind a tree coming out of the hole (photo). The anchors on the trees are obvious, there are several possibilities.

Anchors

For all lines the anchors are the trees, make backup on other trees behind.

Linking

For the 8m go round the hole. For the other two throw a rope to a garden and down to get it or you can go round.

Awesome for putting lines everywhere.
Possibility of dry-tooling and ice climbing in the cave below.
