Bouldering in blocs de columbiere

leave a comment »

This is an awesome place between Annecy and Chamonix. Hundreds of unpolished limestone boulders in a beautiful moutain setting. They all have numbers which you can find in the guidebook sold in local tourists offices. The bigger boulders have bolts on top to attach a top rope to. I went without a top rope or a crash pad and it made every boulder feel like a solo. But it was still a great place to visit. I kept myself to the easiest I could find as I’m going to take the advice this time and ease my fingers back in rather than going all out for another injury!
