About Le Salève:

Geneva closest mountain, Le Saleve has a lot to give. 600m to 1200m atop, Calcaire rock(?), bouldering at the bottom, top rope, long route on the west face, huge overhanging, cracks, you'll find whatever you want there! (more than 450 routes!!!) (If a rock fall the alarm yell would be "Sucre!!!") Check the link below, you'll see everything you need to know about the spot
Nearest town or city: Genève (Switz.), St-Julien
Directions: To get there, from Geneva or Annemasse, go to Collonges-sous-Saleve, stay left through town and keep going up the hill until you arrive at the tennis courts on the left. Just after the courts is the parking lot for the majority of the climbs. By public transit take the H bus to the end and then walk (about 30-40 minutes). Hitching is best done from the traffic circle in Carouge (rondeau de Carouge). Sign essential. Write: Saleve (Coin), so people will know you aren't going to the summit. From Carouge, about 30 minutes by bike.
