Adventure scrambling on Salève: Les Etiollets
 
Adventure scrambling on Salève: Les Etiollets Picture
Saturday, July 4th, 2020 @ 14:00
Bus stop Veyrier-Douane, Geneva
 
What is this outing about?
Les Etiollets is an unforgettable wild and scenic itinerary for those who want to discover the hidden side of Salève: le Bonhomme, le Sphinx, le Trou de la Mule, la Grotte de la Mule, la Grotte de la Table, and many other places.
However, it is a difficult and technical trail that does not appear on any map. And there is a reason for that: it is steep and vertiginous, and most of time you need to scramble (up to climbing level 4). It goes up across the climbers' paradise at Le Coin and ends up at the huge Savoie flag painted on the rocks (you can see it from Geneva).
Elevation gain 750m, distance 5km, time 4-5h
